About me

I am a London based illustrator, animator and storyboard artist. I studied production design at the National Film and Television school and specialised in storyboarding. I have a love of image making and story telling. I am developing my own animated stories and am keen to take on challenging projects so that I can keep learning and advance the skills that I have at my disposal.
