On the first Friday of every month, I organise a little group to meet up at the beautiful Botanic Gardens in Glasnevin and we spend a couple of hours drawing then have lunch together. It’s always a really lovely morning and you are welcome to come too! You can book your free ticket here, and take a look at some of the other mornings here.
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’m interested in combing hand drawn and coloured elements with digital.
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.
[Digital Illustration Workshop] Melissa facilitated a really engaging learning experience, well paced and imaginative, with no question too big or small. Great professional and creative insights supported by great project work. Looking forward to building on this!
A very practical and enjoyable course [Digital Illustration]. I found Melissa to be an enthusiastic, creative and patient tutor. She has an excellent way of imparting knowledge that builds confidence. The focused nature of the course and the small class size allowed a lot of ground to be covered in each session. Excellent value for the time invested and highly recommended.
