I trained as a graphic designer at West Herts University in Watford, Hertfordshire and have the following qualifications.
HND Graphic Design
B A (Hons) Image Making and Design
Post Grad, Digital Post Production
I have worked in oils since I was a child, when I was given my first stretched canvas and paints at the age of five. My artwork received awards at school, but I was encouraged to take up hairdressing and beauty care when I left school. In those days it was generally felt that getting a trade was more important.
After my children started school, I decided to continue my education and joined Watford School of Art, where I continued to improve my life drawing and photography skills.
Since graduating I have worked as a graphic designer, both in the private and public sector. Examples of my commerical design work can be seen at www.allykatsdesign.co.uk
