BA(hons) Animation - 2:1


I have been working freelance since June 2010 producing animations and commissioned paintings for clients.

Internship - Marvimation studio, CG and traditional animation
Lead animator - Flash/After Effects animated visuals for children's theatre production.
Animator - 30s Flash book trailer, designed/animated Flash characters for TV series pitch.
Assistant animator - Animating additional characters for short film and promotional videos.
Assistant animator - charcoal animated visuals for a theatre production.
Workshop Assistant - lead and assisted in youth workshops, group size ranging from 3-30 young people.


My drawing and animation skills allow me to adapt to new software and working techniques quickly as I work both traditionally and digitally in Flash and Toon Boom and my varying project briefs have given me experience in leading and working as part of a team, creating work for younger and more mature audiences, character designing, storyboarding and video editing and special effects in After Effects. I also have a basic knowledge of animating, modelling and rigging in Maya.

I have creative flair as an artist and especially enjoy working with the human figure, from producing commissioned paintings and illustrations for people and large scale murals for local businesses and I often combine traditional and digital techniques to create new and interesting looking pieces.

Always looking to improve my own work and practice, exposing myself to many areas of art and design, I research new techniques and am currently self-directing my own projects to improve my graphic design, web coding and Flash Action Script skills and I have a keen interest in games art, design and graphic novel art. I am skilled with painting digitally in Adobe Photoshop and am familiar with most CS5 programs on PC and MAC and Microsoft Office Programs.
