I am an Honours degree qualified visual artist, skilled in illustration and animation. I have developed a very high level of expertise in traditional media, especially charcoal and ink, and digital media, especially three-dimensional modelling and animation. I devote the majority of my time to my work as an independent artist and writer and I have compiled a large portfolio of written and artistic work. This work is submitted for publication or contributed to artistic exhibitions. I am also a qualified teacher of visual arts, media and ICT and I have worked as a secondary teacher for periods of time. In addition to my independent artistic work, I currently manage a tutoring business in partnership with the city’s artistic society.
