Texturing Trainer, Technicolor Creative
I come from a traditional artist background with a lot of experience in drawing, painting and sculpture. I had received several awards from Communication Arts and American Illustration, however I wanted to start working in 3D, so about 15 years ago I made the leap into VFX. I have since been developing my skills in many areas in VFX and gained experience in working in both 2D and 3D departments and also had a supervisor role in China. My background in Traditional Arts, good observation skills and having strong eye for detail still helps me today.
I’m not sure why I became so fascinated with learning so much about so many departments in VFX, but I did. That’s the beauty of VFX, you will never stop learning and mastering skills and when you do, doors open.
I’ve spent a lot of my career doing training in VFX and I have lectured at Escape Studios where I worked as Program Leader of VFX, plus I’ve lectured at The NFTS, The Met Film School and now I’m at Technicolor Creative Studios.
