Hi there, and welcome to my portfolio site!
During my years as a professional pen & pencil wielder, which took off in 1999, I have done most things an illustrator with a passion for comics and cartoons does.
My sequential illustration work has mainly been made for the Icelandic market, though I have lived in Holland and the UK for most of my career. The first 7 years I focused almost solely on comic making and illustration work for newspapers and magazines. However, since 2007, I have also worked for educational publishers and followed my passion for teaching by offering workshops in comic and cartoon making to libraries and all levels of education.
Feeling that I had reached a stagnation point, I took a break from freelance work in 2014 and embarked on a MA Future Design study at Teesside University, and then straight after took on a lecturer role in Concept Art at the School of Computing within the same university in the academic year 2016-2017. Due to external changes, I have moved back to freelance work, although my eyes do drift towards a part-time academic venture, or a fulltime job within the creative industry.
After 9 years in the NE of England, I am currently based in London where I am finding my way and getting to know the scene and enjoying all that this great city has to offer.
Enjoy having a browse through my work!
