I was a school teacher for ten years and then decided to retrain into graphic design. During my study I discovered animation and I was hooked! I have always been an artist and love to make up stories - now I get to combine my two loves through 2D animation. I especially enjoy using traditional media to create the pictures or characters and then moving onto the computer to 'tweak' the images. I prefer stop-motion animation but often use Flash to speed up the process as well.
I have drawn and painted since I was able to hold onto a crayon! I love to create stunning images and am working on my own picture book in my spare time. I like to use a blend of traditional media and Photoshop.
