Valerie Do

I'm Valerie Do and I'm an environment artist for games born and raised in Vancouver, B.C.

I decided to pursue CG when my friends got me into playing games. The more I played the more I gain the application for the artist that build these environments and characters I like so much. When I entered Think Tank Training Centre, at first I thought I would be more interested in the animation side of things but it opened my eyes to see how much I really like to build the environment the audience sees in games or film. I am currently an alumni at Think Tank finishing up my demo reel but I'm ready for work with the amount of knowledge I have gain from entering this school. 

Before enrolling into Think Tank I worked as a web designer and developer working at multiple small companies and freelanced for about a year and a half. I graduated from Capilano University studying Interactive Design.
