|WordPress Origin Story||
After graduating I decided to teach myself web coding for fun learning HTML and CSS to make “static” websites. I started to use WordPress around 2007 as I became interested in content management systems and found it to be the most promising of several I tried. I then learned more about PHP and started to customise themes and eventually build my own themes. During this time I also taught myself digital art and improved my drawing and painting skills. I did various administrative jobs and freelance work (including an Illustration for FHM magazine) whilst I improved my skills.
Since 2008 I have been doing freelance website development and providing website maintenance for local organisations which included website design, development and maintenance with WordPress, but am refocusing to pursue my art career which I am passionate about. I will still develop WordPress themes in my spare time for my own interests.
