About me
I qualified as an animator in 2014 and so far I have worked on projects including children’s apps, web content, and short films. My work is mostly made by digital means, working predominantly in Photoshop and After Effects, but I try to keep a handmade, lo-fi feel to it. I have a varied background of education and training, having studied biology and worked as a teacher and so have a lot of experience to draw from - namely working collaboratively and problem solving. I have a strong attention to detail and an eye for composition and colour. My approach is inventive yet methodical. When I have free time, I also enjoy independent cinema, amateur photography, exploring London, visiting obscure museums, flea markets and collecting treasure.
