I am a 3D artist with a passion for creating environments. I would like to work within a studio with people as passionate about games art as myself. I am always learning new approaches and techniques to improve the quality of my work and the efficiency of my process. I want to create environments that people will remember, in the same way that my favourite games did for me.
I undertook a one year placement at Canalside Studios where I worked on 'Little Awesome Dudes,' a VR title made by a team of 8, which we published on Steam. As the lead artist was responsible for creating both realistic and stylized environments from start to finish. Prior to University I previously studied Digital Media, Art, English Language and Literature at college. In my spare time I used to create more traditional work and paintings but now I find myself more often experimenting and discovering new things relating to 3D art. I still find the artistic parts of games art to be the most fun to work on, with texturing props and lighting and composition in environments being the areas that I can get lost in.
