I have a friendly, bubbly personality and enjoy illustation and painting a great deal of different subjects and genres. I especially enjoy painting people in environments and also portrature. The artists who inspire me most are the impressionists and pre-raphaelite artists. Although currently working as a Learning Support Assistant in a local school part-time I paint quite a lot in my spare time and I am a trained graphic designer, although my experience was many years ago. I attended art school in 1984-1988 and have an OND and HND in Graphic Design. Alas unfortunately I do not have experience in photoshop, illustrator, in-design or any of the computer packages which are asked for. I have studied web-design as well - Frontpage, Dreamweaver MX and Flash - but again I do not have any direct experience using these other than to design my own web page for the course. I would welcome the chance to illustrate and to paint pictures freelance.
