About me

 

I am a confident, approachable and enthusiastic individual travelling the world whilst working as a windsurf instructor. I have always had an underlying passion for creativity, music and design. Studying Photography and Graphic Communication at A level. I then proceeded to study art and design foundation at Arts University Bournemouth to build my portfolio and to get a larger grasp on all the possibilities and avenues I could go down within this industry. On completion of this diploma I decided to move to China to introduce and encourage a sport I love whilst experiencing a completely different culture and way of life. It was an incredible experience, I feel I have grown immensely as an individual since exposing myself to many cultures and areas of the world. Recently returning back to the UK from South Africa. I am planning on studying this coming September at one of the art/ applied science institutes in Holland. Currently looking for internships in my areas of interest. From companies in both the design and music world to build my experience before I embark on my studies. contact details : eviejames@hotmail.co.uk 07827994072
