I’m a digital artist from the shires of Wolverhampton in the West Midlands. I graduated from Huddersfield University with a BA (hons) in Virtual Reality design with Animation alongside my fellow Co-Creators.
I’m currently a freelance artist working a few different projects while I look for a more permanent design job. Other than working with Pineapple’d, I run and manage an art group alongside one of my close friends and colleague and I also do work experience at Void Creative, a small local print and design company.
A quick summary of me is: During my personal time I enjoy drawing and creating my own original artwork, I’m also a gamer, I mainly play via PC and PS4. I’m very much into the gaming community and besides playing games; I enjoy the development and design process that goes into them. When I’m not drawing or gaming I use my time to create music. I play the guitar and produce recordings for my own band; Feed ‘em to the Wolves, check them out on Soundcloud if you like Metalcore.
Netflix is a favourite pass time for me, I enjoy watching films, TV series and documentaries. I’m quite well known to ignore the world while I binge watch a show for three days straight.
My whole life has been on a creative path, whether is been creating art, graphics or music. It’s always a win when you can take something you enjoy doing and make a life and a career out of it. Hopefully Pineapple’d will be a useful tool for all artists to get the exposure and credit they deserve.
