Personal Description:


I am an artist & designer based in Scotland. I have over 1000 hours of tuition experience both online and offline.
I am a practicing artist and designer and the learners who pay me often give me great feedback and reviews.

I have produced animations/modelling projects for offshore engineering, education and entertainment sectors since 1999.
I have had 2 page articles about my work in the magazine 3D World. I also recently sold one of my 3D prints to a Hollywood film in post production. For my own work, I often use 3D to make things in the real world using 3D printing, laser cutting etc. I have worked contractually at a FabLab and also completed arts residencies at FabLabs in London , Canada and Iceland.

Students often give me great feedback. I am new to this site I joined (19th November 2022), I hope to find some more learners here :)
I often help students with projects and ideas that they want to complete as task based learning.
