I'm a post graduate student just finishing a three year degree course in Digital Animation. I'm a keen illustrator and feel that I have developed a unique style, and in my spare time I'm always drawing and trying to improve my digital skills. Lately I have been drawing at any opportunity I can, and want to continue to develop my skills as an artist. Currently I am learning how to use Maya and learning 3D modelling/animation skills, as well as continuing my illustration and cartoon work. I'm working on entries for competitions and will be posting those onto my blog or deviant art account. If you like what you see and think I may be right for any job then feel free to message me, at this point I'm not looking to earn huge amounts of money as I'm still an upcoming artist so fees can be discussed at a later date.

PROFESSIONAL PROFILE I am a graphic designer and creative professional with almost 20 years of experience in graphic design and publishing. I am accomplished in all aspects of print design. I pride myself on being a results-oriented problem solver with flexibility, enthusiasm and the ability to consistently meet deadlines. I am able to work alone, in a team or lead a group.
