About

I have been working as a 2D generalist in the mobile games industry since 2011, after graduating with a bA in Drawing and Applied Arts from the University of West England. Throughout my career in mobile games I have developed a keen eye for appealing and fun artwork. I enjoy developing my artistic skills and personal art outside of work and I am always striving to improve. I'm a hands-on type of person who enjoys working in teams.
