Matt Elder
Matt grew up in country NSW, near the beach and in the country which gave him a special appreciation for landscape. As an impressionable teenager, Matt spent several years living in remote and cold parts of Canada where the contrast of the landscape to sun burnt NSW was dramatic. As a child, Matt was always drawing and absorbed in animation, film and comics.

Matt studied civil engineering, law and a masters of commerce at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia. While studying, he became involved in publishing in his spare time. Matt spent many years working as a freelance graphic designer and artist in both print and web. Clients included international accounting firms, multinational soft drink manufacturers, telcos, various advertising agencies and charities. Matt’s work has been showcased in various issues of Design Graphics with artists from all over the world.

Matt furthered his artistic education by studying at Julian Ashton, the National Art School and Grosvenor Studios. He also spent time in Europe in the major galleries studying the old masters. Matt is currently working as a commercial illustrator / animator (Aristocrat) and paints traditional oil paintings for private clients. He is based in Paddington, Sydney.

Matt offers free video tutorials on “How to Draw” for absolute beginners, through to “Masterclasses” for seasoned professionals on his website:
