Hello and Bonjour.

Hello there. First of all, I cannot speak french, though I wish I could. More importantly, I'm Derek! I am a proud father of three boys and husband to a very crafty lady. We are based on the Central Coast of NSW, Australia.

During the day I am usually found working as a story artist for animated tv and film, sketching up all the story ideas waiting to be given movement and life in animation. I have also dabbled in character design and art direction. 

When I am not working or imparting my invaluable Canadian wisdom to my sons, I am creating fun and imaginative portraits for people just like you. However you have found me, welcome and thanks for stopping by. If you are part of the Instagram community, feel free to check out my art there where I share portraits, personal art and random moments from our life. Check me out at @derekmooreis
