What brought you to study at Teesside University?

I have always wanted to be an artist, but I didn’t want to just paint or work in a gallery. I chose to study animation, because it seemed the most attractive use for artistic skills. Teesside University offers a great course that covers traditional art skills as well as digital workflows.

What was the course like?

With the great staff and facilities, this is one of the best places to study Animation and Visual Effects. I have also met great people on the Computer Animation course. Working with them has made spending hours cooped up inside in front of computers much more fun. In my free time I was a member of the Climbing Club and the Teesside University Bouldering Team. The region has some great spots for outdoor climbing, which made for a great experience.

What are you doing now?

I am currently enrolled in a post-graduate course, working to hone my skills for a junior artist position in a small studio, possibly in advertising.
