I am an animation practitioner and Lecturer for the BA (Hons) Animation course at Leeds Arts University, specialising in directing, visual storytelling and idea generation. With an additional degree in Acting, I have a strong background in theatre and an in-depth understanding of character performance. I enjoy experimenting with seemingly unfitting styles and focusing on characters that usually get overlooked. And, where it fits, I add rhyme to the mixture.
As a freelance practitioner I work primarily with 2D animation, combining hand-made and digital techniques. My work has been shown internationally at film festivals and distributed in Europe. In the most recent years I have worked on a variety of projects, ranging from short films, through corporate studio work, to commissioned projections and music videos.
I am currently working freelance in Bristol, UK. If you would like to work with me on a project, please get in touch. This is what I’ve been up to recently:
And here’s a link to an article I wrote for History Press Local on adapting a folk tale for animation.
