    In my portfolio during this period there was a balance between creative and corporate work.

During this time I trained small groups in the use of Dreamweaver, and how to hardcode html, then this moved on to WordPress sites. I have been responsible for the conception, design, implementation and upgrading/maintenance of clients’ websites.

    A little bit about me

    I sketch and paint when I get the chance, and enjoy life drawing especially……I studied art at Foundation level. I collect vinyl, old paper, letterpress blocks stamps, postcards and textures for use in collages. I often look around car boot sales, reclamation yards, and graphic design shops, specifically Magma on Oldham Street Manchester. LOVE that shop. I practise Tai Chi, enjoy gardening, swimming and travelling: I have been to Prague, Talinn, Moscow, St Petersburg, Kracow, Sydney, France, Greece, Spain.
