After the above jobs I started to work as freelance graphic designer and fine artist, expressing more and more of my diverse range of styles, techniques and approaches.

Since 2012 I have been consulting on branding, graphic design & signage for StateoftheArt gallery who also exclusively sell my Nuances art series.
