About Me

I'm an animation graduate with a huge love for animation and illustration. I graduated in 2011 from Norwich University College of the Arts leaving with a first class honours in Animation. My graduate film has been screened at various festivals since and was short listed for the International Stop Motion Animation Competition at the 3rd Se-Ma-For Film Festival in Poland in 2012.

I currently work as a freelance animator and illustrator painting portraits, pets, landscapes and illustrations for children's story books, creating all manner of wonderful fantastical imagery which I love to do!

I like to work in multiple mediums - watercolours, oil paints and Adobe Photoshop/Illustrator. I'm fascinated by each medium and spend a lot of time learning what I can create with them all individually, or together. If you're interested in my work or would like to discuss a project, please don't hesitate to get in touch. 

All the best!
