    I am an incredibly creative person with many skills. My specialties include Digital art, Character design, and 2D animation! I enjoy illustrating and design very much, but my passion is animation. I would love to branch out and animate or create content for other companies, or combine my deep love of music with my art and create some album/single covers. I do poster designs and comics as well. I've also always dreamed of illustrating a children's book. I run my own children's art class for slightly older kids. I've designed tattoos for myself and my friends, and i might as well add that i can sing! I do personally believe i can do anything i set my heart on, so this list may never be complete! -Ruby

    I am passionate about visual effects and 3D animation and completed a Diploma of Animation at Yoobee College in 2022. During my diploma I focused on 3D modelling and have gained skills within modelling that enable me to model, texture, compose, light and animate a scene/assets. I've been teaching myself Houdini since the beginning of 2023 as I am very interested in visual effects and love learning new software. Prior to my diploma in animation I graduated from Unitec (2019) where I completed a Bachelor of Production Design and Management where I specialised as an Art Director and Set Designer. The combination of these two qualifications have set me up to be an adaptable worker with creative ideas and a passion for creating stories through 3D environments/assets. I am a confident, proactive and hard worker who is willing to undergo any task that I am presented with. My qualities include high motivation, efficiency and I take pleasure in creativity.

    I wanted to be a musician, a cartoonist or a sensational celebrity. I just happened to be none of them, but I have something to do with all of them. I produce the thing that inspires us to become "someone". Nowadays, it is hard to correctly appreciate who you are and who you want to be. My visuals bridge the reality and the ideality. We exist through the moments we capture with a camera, which perhaps will never appear the same again, so I draw and paint. All of our creations are what we record; we record ourselves. I love music, drawing, films and writing, which can convey the sense of existence not limited to what you are here and now. I provide videography, photography and stories behind.
