I am a working artist currently in my final year at the ANU school of art, majoring in print-making and drawing. My work is  heavily influenced by comic book artwork.I have recently been working towards a series of screen print posters made by collaging discarded comic books salvaged from dumpster bins, web stores and op shops. I also experiment with making zines and printing my own cartoon characters using different screen print techniques.
