This is me, I became an illustrator because I wanted to be really happy in my job and it worked! I always aim to put love and happiness into everything I do. I really enjoy working with people and helping them learn new ways of expressing their creativity, and I’m good at making things simple.
I love collaging hand drawn and coloured elements with digital to make my own little wonky world.
My undergraduate degree is in Architecture (B.Sc from UCD) and I have a Masters in Digital Media Technology (DIT). I am also an Adobe Certified Expert in Illustrator.
As a curator and artist I found it very frustrating when I had ideas for flyers, posters and exhibition invites but constantly had to go to someone else to create them! When I discovered the Digital Illustration course I decided it was high time to upskill in this area. I previously had a very basic knowledge of photoshop and no experience whatsoever of any design programmes but I found the course really worthwhile and learnt a lot in a few short weeks. The small class size was ideal for one on one assistance and all of the notes were available afterwards which was extremely valuable.
I’ve always loved drawing and printing, last year I decided to start my own wedding stationary business (https://www.littlepapermill.ie) but I had no knowledge of illustrator which I would need to develop my designs into wedding invitations. I got in touch with Melissa to get some one-to-one tuition. I found Melissa was very clear when giving direction, and made the somewhat daunting task of learning illustrator enjoyable. As well as teaching the technical side of illustrator Melissa has great ideas and helped me put the final finish on some of my designs.
