About

Hi, my name is Craig and I'm a person. I have a habit of putting my trousers on one leg at a time and I prefer to be too hot than too cold. In my spare time, I tend to think about what I can do in my spare time and then I run out if it and fall into a bout of frustration. I believe I'm like most people on the planet but I do not have the evidence to confirm nor deny that claim. And, if you ever manage to speak to me in person, please bear with me. I'm still trying to work out how this life-thing works.

If you are wondering, I'm based in Manchester, U.K. I spend most of my days in my studio, making art, developing software and/or writing. You can see my endeavours by perusing through this website -- which I hope you like. I've tried to make it as nice as possible to look at and use.

The type of artwork I make have a minimal aesthetic. I tend to use "space" as a starting point and create two-dimensional work. I'm looking to start making sculptures again at some point but I don't know when.

With regards to programming, the languages I'm most comfortable with at the minute are C# and PHP. I have produced work in the desktop and mobile spaces using Unity3D, WPF and UWP; and the web. The web stacks I've used are WordPress, ASP.Net and ASP.Net Core. I've, also, used custom frameworks created in PHP but I will spare you the details.

The Writing section of this website is where I blog. At the minute, it's geared toward my thoughts on and around art. Although, this might change over time when/if it matures into something. Up to now, it's something I've used to help me improve my writing skills but the output-level is not great.

If you want or need to contact me, you can email at craig  craig@craigoates.net.
