About me

Lovely to meet you! I’m a passionate stop-frame animation director and animator. Stylistically, I specialise in films that although 3D have a drawn element to them; whilst also being quite heavily influenced by Germanic Expressionist films. Along with my strong style and bizarre narratives, I am also confident in set lighting and design; often combining painted lines and shadows to create strong contrasts and experiment with perspective. Although ever so slightly quirky a person, I’m hardworking, enjoy coming up with unique ideas and creating strange and beautiful worlds through animation. Also partial to a bitof drawing and sketching.
