About

About me

I am an artist, scriptwriter, animator and designer. I tell visual stories that bring to life ideas big and small. In my interdisciplinary practice I use a variety of media intertwining them to bring ideas to life in interesting and thought provoking ways. I take time to consider the plot, purpose and format when creating a piece. Through my education and work in narrative animation, fine arts and communication I have come to value the connection with the audience. I want to give them an experience that touches all of their senses.


I specialise in visualising ideas and stories through writing and drawing. I spend a lot of time with the idea and giving it shape before sketching, making storyboards and animatics that bring the idea to life.


I like to collaborate with other artists and take on different roles in creative projects. I believe this is fundamental for artists in our community as it opens up to new perspectives and we should never stop developing our skills and stay curious!
