Hi! My name is Ellie, I am 22 years old and I live in England, UK. In my spare time, I enjoy gaming, playing the guitar and making games.
I graduated in 2020 with a degree in BA (Hons) Game Arts and Design at the University of Plymouth and achieved a first-class honours, and I am now looking for a career in games. My education has allowed me to gain skills in all areas of games, giving me hands on experience in both indie development and what it takes to work on a team project. I have had the opportunity to learn how to use industry-standard software such as Autodesk Maya, Substance Painter and Unity Games Engine, amongst others.
Since graduating, I have taken on freelance work which has offered me a unique perspective on game art. In addition to having plenty of time to work on my portfolio, I have also been fortunate enough to work on everything from gamification techniques and principles for a non-game application, to putting a small game together for an independent artist. This has allowed me to learn a lot about deadlines and organisation, giving me a real taste of the working world!
