I have always played video games growing up but it was on the back of my mind as an actual career that I would go into. I was an artist at heart, always loved sculpting and painting and that played into a lot of hobbies like models trains and miniature building. As a career I knew what inspired me the most was being able to create something and bring it to life.

Hi, my name is Abigail Jameson I’m 20 years old, and I’m currently finishing my final year of a BA in Computer Games Art at Teesside University (UK). I come from a fine art background, with skills in traditional drawing and painting. However, I’ve always had a love for games and was determined to combine my love and appreciation for art and video games, which is why i was overjoyed when i found that i could study games at university.

I am a 21 years old environment artist from Belgium. I recently finished my studies game graphics at Howest Digital Arts and Entertainment. I used to draw a lot and I started my studies thinking I would become a concept artist, but I soon realised that that was not for me and I found that my real passion is creating 3D environments. While I am able to make realistic work, I prefer to work stylized. I’m the happiest when I’m making cute and cozy stylized scenes, preferably hand painted.
