It started as a hobby

My web design journey started with personal projects, that eventually sparked my interest in building websites professionally. Gradually, I transitioned into part-time freelance work while honing my skills and exploring different areas such as design theory, branding and visual identity, SEO, front-end development, and of course, WordPress and related tools. Just before the pandemic hit, I took the exciting step of establishing my own freelance business. Achieving this milestone fulfilled a long-time dream, and now I'm super excited to build and maintain my professional portfolio and further channel my creativity.

I specialise in WordPress and Elementor Pro

In the past, I've built websites from scratch using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript (oh, the Dreamweaver times!), but I've since become to love WordPress-based site-building, often using Elementor Pro and related tools. This empowers me to efficiently create beautiful, creative, and functional websites that are tailored to specific needs and easy to maintain. I'm also interested in continuous improvements with UI/UX design to ensure user-friendly navigation and experience, site speed and SEO for improved search engine visibility. I'm also a strong advocate for accessibility and equitable design. Through my commitment to these principles, coupled with continuous learning in this area, I want to make sure all user groups can have a seamless and enjoyable experience using the websites I create.

I'm a life-long learner and mostly self taught

Being mainly self-taught, I've sharpened my skills through hands-on experience and a relentless passion for learning. But the journey never stops! I'm currently studying towards a Bachelor's degree in Design, as well as doing various professional courses on topics that enhance my skills from web design to running a freelance business.

โ˜• More about me

Outside of work, I'm often tinkering with personal web projects, enjoying a nice cup of coffee, hitting the gym, doing some creative writing or having a sunshine-filled walk outside. I have a soft spot for my two cats ๐Ÿˆ ๐Ÿˆโ€โฌ›  and you can probably see how they, along with my interest in fantasy and nature, have inspired me with the look of this website!

Although I spend most of my time at home, sitting at my computer, building and maintaining genuine connections with people means the world to me and, in a client situation also fosters effective collaboration. I can't wait to get to know you and your vision! ๐Ÿ˜Š
