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’m interested in combing hand drawn and coloured elements with digital to get the best of both worlds.

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 really enjoyed the Digital Illustration course – the small class size meant it was really hands on and I picked up lots of great tips and tricks in a short space of time!

I have had the good fortune to discover Melissa Doran of Go Radiate just at a time when I needed to develop my photo and video editing skills In support of my fledgling photography practice. Not only is Melissa a technical wizard with expertise in a range of digital media she also has an strong artistic sensibility. These attributes together with her natural facility for clear communication and her easygoing manner makes for a creative and fun learning experience. I recommend highly one-to-one tuition with Melissa where your artistic and technical needs will be met. Enjoy!
