I am an illustrator, animator and writer who creates work using traditional and digital media. In my 2D work I am very flexible on style, backgrounds and character design. If you would like to discuss a project please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 075 2682 2095.
I work digitally with Photoshop, Illustrator and Procreate. In painted commissions and projects I use watercolour, acrylic, oils, gouache and pen and ink finishes. At university I studied 3D and 2D animation, but have also worked in whiteboard animation, stopmotion and paper cutout animation.
Having lived in the UK and South Africa, I take inspiration from the wildlife, flora and folklore I've encountered throughout my life. I am an avid reader with a wide range of literary interests and influences and enjoy exploring the realms of the fantastic and otherworldly in my work.

Want to see your ideas brought to life? Let's discuss what you want...
Your story ideas can be brought to life through a 2D character animation. Additionally animated gifs can be created to present a winking, smiling and laughing character, perfect for profiles, reaction pieces or birthday e-cards.
All character animations can be created to fly, run and dance. I do not offer character modelling or rigging characters for projects.
During my final year of university I kept this blog to track my audiences responses and market research while I created a pitch package for a short form webseries title 'Urban Myths'. For my final hand in I presented scripts, concept art, and a pilot animatic to show the marketable potential of the work and show how all the the skills I'd learnt whilst studying animation could be applied in a real life situation creating the project.
If you are interested in talking to me about my experiences or are a student trying to understand how you can best create a rounded portfolio for applications to universities or jobs please contact me at email@example.com and I'll offer you any advice I can. If you are London based I also offer short tutoring sessions on painting and drawing for fine art and illustration, as well as teaching the basics of animation in both 2D and 3D.
