Hi there, my name is Krista Rowland. I'm a 25 year-old Canadian living in Utrecht, The Netherlands with my Dutch partner. I'm a Compositor by trade but I consider myself an all-around visual artist. I have nearly 5 years of experience working in the feature-film, television and commericial industry. Most notably I had the pleasure of working on such projects as, The Legend of Tarzan (Feature-film), Vikings (TV Series), and with corporate brands including, Heineken, Milka and Lipton; to name a few.
Although my work experience centres around one area of the media industry, I've always been passionate about all avenues of media production. I'm a curious person by nature so I enjoy dipping my toes into different fields, which is how I've grown to love other outlets like photography, photo editing, animation and now, web development. However through my education and work experience, I was also able to explore many different functions varying from web design, graphic design, UX design, compositing, marketing and public relations. As a result therefore I have gained a strong artistic and technical background, working with a variety of software packages and programming languages that are applicable across multiple platforms.
At the moment I am on a small career break to improve my Dutch language skills; I'm currently working towards a B1 level Dutch language certificate at Babel Taalinstituut in Utrecht. However when I have some spare time you'll often find me behind a computer either editing my photos, watching behind-the-scenes videos on Youtube, or learning more about web development.
Once my language course in finished, I hope to explore web development further by pursueing a career in Front-End Development. Eventually I would also expand my programming knowledge by working with back-end languages so that I can get a complete understanding of the digital world and how it all works.
