All my life I've loved anything to do with art and making. As a child I would always make something from anything I could find. I have continued to love being creative.

Animation, Graphic and Web Design and Achievements.

Animation

Animation has always been a big part of my life. My greatest inspiration would be Wallace and Gromit and 'Grand Day Out' is still my favourite.

It was only when I was 13 that I decided to do some plasticine animation. With my Stop Motion Software and the book 'Cracking Animation', I made a teddy bear character with button eyes. I spent 3 years working on this project, making the sets and animating it.

I then went on to University to do a degree in Animation, making my 'Sand Troll' film and many more. Overall I got a 1st class degree and best in show. I was very pleased with my work.

Graphic and Web

I have expanded my outlook on art and design, and now work for a Graphic and Web design company called Lantec. During this time I have made icons and designed websites. I have also learned how to build websites including this website you're on now.

My biggest project so far was an event for Boot Out Breast Cancer, Bollywood Ball, where I produced posters, flyers and booklets for the event. I’m continuing to learn new skills and make more websites.
