Self Taught

Jun 2000 - Aug 2004
  • I didn't feel challenged or satisfied by the Fine Art Foundation that I had started after leaving secondary school. I quit that course and began an advance NVQ in Graphic Design. Naively, at the time I thought that's all I needed to get into the industry. I very quickly realised there was much more to it and slowly taught myself with books and the internet.
