|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.
From 2008 I did freelance website development and provided website maintenance for local organizations which included website design, development and maintenance with WordPress, but I no longer do this type of work.
I decided to refocus and develop the Illustration side of things from 2013. I still dabble with WordPress but am no longer actively maintaining or updating the old themes I made, so please be aware of this.
