Personal Profile


I am an accomplished 3d computer graphics artist with specialist skills in Character creation. My greatest assets are my observation skills with creative flair, and my ability to adapt to any situation. I am hard working, mature, friendly, confident, motivated, responsible, loyal and punctual. As a highly motivated, responsible team member I have extensive experience of working creatively to deadlines within varying production pipelines. My previous Fine Art background has endowed me with a widespread understanding of visual content, and has provided me with the ability to apply thorough conceptual thinking and creative solutions to each project.
