A little introduction….

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 nature and animals..and bicycles!

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.

Rave Reviews

I attended the 3-day illustrator and photoshop course with Go Radiate in summer 2014 and found it very useful and thorough.
Melissa was excellent and was able to answer every question asked by the group.
I would highly recommend it.

[Digital Illustration] Sincere thanks for your very informative workshops on the uses of both Illustrator and Photoshop CS6. I found the workshops to be hugely beneficial in getting an overview of the possibilities as well learning invaluable short cuts in the detail. I greatly appreciated your calm consideration of my many difficulties and your patience in tracing my points of error. I found the sessions informal and relaxed, which for me was an essential part of the learning and would highly recommend them to anyone coming to terms with the details of Illustration practice in its many diverse forms.
