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.

I am a teenager with 10+ years drawing experience. I have recently started painting, however I find that my strength lies in pencils and paper. I mainly draw horses, but I have also created many 'cartoon' animals, including dogs, cats, birds, and several others.

I am made in China, and now in the United States market. I can speak Mandarin, Cantonese, and Hakka Chinese. Since I grew up speaking both of Mandarin and Cantonese, they should be both considered my first language. Even though people consider the three types of Chinese I speak dialects, they actually are totally different languages. I don't have any case to show right now because I just decided, yes at this random moment on a random Thursday night, to give "freelance translator" a shot. I hope my portfolio will grow with you!
