I’m a creative spirit who one day stumbled across 3D modelling and fell in, head first. I’ve been soaking up knowledge and striving to improve ever since.

Biography

Forget your ideas about the 'typical' 3D model creator. When your work involves transforming ideas into polygons, and polygons into products, only one thing matters: to love what you do.

I'm proud to work in this amazing, challenging, constantly-evolving field. I've been inspired along the way by talented people of all ages and backgrounds.

I didn't come in by the usual route, but have fought every inch to learn and improve and produce the best work I can. Restricted to working with what I could afford as a non-student entrant to the field, I discovered the power of open-source and indie software.

Making the most of the tools at hand has taught me to be versatile and resourceful, with a focus on the quality of the end product rather than a reliance on big-name software.


My Specialities?

Although I'm happiest of all when pushing vertices around, curiosity combined with necessity have made me a 3D generalist. To date I have done all my own design and concept work, texturing, rigging and artwork, but I'm open to collaborations with other artists.

When it comes to finished products, I'm probably first thought of as an environment artist. However, my fascination with trying new things has led to me working on everything from fully-rigged clothing to shader presets and themed poses.


Let's Do This Together

For me, success is knowing that my creations enable others to bring their own ideas to life. I'd love to do that for you too. Feel free to get in touch.
