I am an illustrator and animator combining traditional drawing methods and photographed textures with digital colour and compositing. I grew up in Lyme Regis with the fossils and the fishes and after living, studying and working in the midlands for 15 years I’ve finally been drawn back to the south coast in a search for new creative challenges.
My hand-drawn animation work can be seen in the feature documentary 1 Way Up 3D from Jet Set Films and Academy Award winning producers Shine Global. My recent illustration work can be seen in numerous publications from Brighton-based Pen Press and in Greg Allum’s The Anteater That Didn’t. I won the Great Animation Challenge 2010, had an Artist of the Month exhibition at Print Room in Lewes in May 2012 and was highly commended by the Campaign for Drawing for my work for the Big Draw 2012.
In 2015 I graduated from the MA Sequential Design/Illustration at the University of Brighton with distinction for my project The Animators of Pre-Cinema & Their Demons.
