About me
A creative practitioner with a passion for painting and graphic illustration. My intentions are to produce high quality commissions relating to client requests and achieving set brief outlines. I am adaptive to many mediums with a strong skill set in digital/traditional painting, fictional illustration and commercial graphic art. Having recently graduated with a 2:1 degree from the University Of Southampton I now wish to apply and widen my knowledge within the creative industry.
