Nelson was born in Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia and grew up in Perth, Western Australia. He has an education in software engineering and commerce, but has always had a passion for drawing and art.

His passion was reawoken as an adult when he lived in Darmstadt, Germany. There in 2016, he saw an evening course offered in comics and illustration and signed up for it. Since then, he has been working on his art career.



How I can help.

If you have an edited children’s book story, but no illustrations, I can illustrate your children’s book.

If you have a completed book, but no book cover, I can help illustrate your book cover.
