With an extensive background in the magazine publishing industry, ranging over a period of sixteen years, ifourdezign has attained a varying array of skillsets in layout and print media.
However, it has only been since 2009, that ifourdezign discovered a passion for digital portraiture, and would still consider herself relatively new to this style of painting.
“You are rarely taught these kind of skillsets in a live studio environment. There just isn’t time when you’re on a tight deadline. So much of what you learn comes from the work you do in your spare time.” — ifourdezign
Also, in the last few years, ifourdezign has also started to delve into another new passion, 3D posing software. Something of a revelation considering ifourdezign in a bygone era had 3D phobia after failing miserably on the first day of an Autocad course! This style of work has more recently started to appear in commercial work.
As a self-confessing perfectionist, with a keen eye for detail, ifourdezign believe’s it is often these extra intricacies that can make the difference to a project. And it is high on her agenda to continue producing, detailed, high quality, photo-realistic work, utilizing both 2D and 3D software, in both personal and commercial projects.

Please Note: All commercial TV related work is created using either Adobe Photoshop / Illustrator / 3D Software based programs. Any figurative content featuring actors has been created from scratch. They are NOT photograph's that have just had a photoshop filter / or an illustrator live trace filter placed over the top. Nor or do I EVER do paintover digital portraits. ALL portraits are painstakingly painted USING photography as reference only. For ALL details on background workings on most pieces you can visit my Behance account.
