Hi there, My name is Caitlin and this is my website/online portfolio.
I am a CG artist, graduating from the University of South Wales.
I first fell in love with CG Art back in High school. Like many people films, games, tv was my escapism from the mundane, but initially it was never any more than that. I always had an interest in art and knew I wanted to pursue a career in art but didn't really know too much about CG art or how it was a possible career path for me till a friend began sharing with me their 'Art of' Books relating to whatever game or series we happened to be obsessed over at the time.
I had never thought about CG models and how they were a product of art and instantly I fell in love with the art form and knew that this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.
I love creating characters and environments and believe strongly in the power of visual story telling. I often don't like to think of my creations as 'just a character' or 'just an environment'. I like to think of them as people and places, and I believe strongly this helps fuel my artistic desire to create that person or place. When we stop thinking of something as just an object the possibilities of your creations become endless.
