I was commissioned to paint a special Christmas gift for an adorable little girl this year. The only thing I had to go on were the colours in her room, and the fact that they called her "Sugarplum". Here's what I came up with!

The finished painting; acrylic on 18" x 20" canvas.
I am currently working as a Background Colour Artist at DHX Media Vancouver (Studio B Productions) on "Littlest Pet Shop". I am also moonlighting as a kids book illustrator in my [spare] time. I graduated with my Bachelor of Arts in Animation degree from Sheridan College in April 2009. My thesis short animated film entitled "Tah-Dah" won two awards for excellence in filmmaking, and screened at 46 film festivals around the U.S. & Canada. My background is Graphic Design, but since the age ripe ol' age of 6, animation was calling my name, so I thought - life is too short, I gotta see where this crazy dream will lead me!
