Background story:

"I have always had an interest in Art and Design and studied Fine Art and Graphics at school with a view to going straight to university…too fond of my freedom I didn’t get there as soon as Id hoped and instead plonked for an office job.

I only got back into it after I had my son Luca; not wanting to go back into full time employment after he was born I started attending college to do an HND in Multimedia over two years. After that I started on the BA(Hons) Digital Arts course which had less technical focus and more freedom of expression.

I graduated last July after spending my final year concentrating on animation with After Effects. Since graduating I have been freelancing as well as part time lecturing in Graphics and Multimedia (at the same college where I did my HND)"

Future dream:

"To stay happy"

Favorite artist:

"Too many…Kareem Iliya, Carlotta, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, David Carson…Burgerman’s a good’un tooo"

Message to young artists:

"Enjoy yourself within your work and know the rules before you break them." -
Maxine Lee, March 2005
