My Story

When I was 25 I badly broke my left wrist and was unable to work for several months.  I spent this time to pursue a different career starting with studying an Access Course in Art & Design to gain enough credits to go to University and study Architecture.  During this time I made a 30-second stop-motion Animation using plasticine and fell in love with every aspect and challenge of the creative process

I then went on to Northumbria University where I gained a Masters degree in Motion Graphics and Animation.  I spent this time working on projects using all styles of animation and have a vast knowledge of computer and traditional techniques.  Creating animations from storyboard to editing and also experimenting with many materials in  model-making and production design.

After graduating in 2014 I moved to London and began working as a freelance 2D and 3D generalist.  I've worked on animations, short films, computer games and painting/illustration commissions.

I have a huge passion for teaching and currently run after school clubs in Primary Schools where I teach painting, drawing, model-making, puppetry and animation.
