This is my story as a website artist + how I got to where I am now. I feel it is vital to acknowledge the antiquated but important websites that I made through the process of learning how to design + develop - as it is through creating these that I truly learned how to hone my craft. Here I offer an exclusive look, revealing never-before-seen portfolios. This is a brave but honest exposure of my sketchbook, + whilst many people would not have the confidence to do this, I am proud of my unique portfolio of work. I was once told by Graham Linehan - the writer of the IT crowd “Hide all the bullshit + only show the best pieces, they think you’re a genius!” Here I dare to do the opposite. Follow me down the rabbit hole as I lay bare each chapter of my story.
My first paid client came when I was on the way home from the train station the same day I returned home from Sweden, outside a hairdressers in Ipswich. I was helping an elderly lady who fell over in the street, + the owner of the salon waited with me until the ambulance came + mentioned she needed a website. The rest is history.
