I am a professional freelance 2D animator & illustrator based in the East Midlands with a great sense of humour and a passion for digital media. I lecture BA (Hons) Animation at Staffs Uni too so I am constantly being inspired and have a vast background knowledge of the subject.
Prior to lecturing, I completed an Animation Bursary Scheme at The LightHouse in Wolverhampton where my animation "Bone Creature" was created, and was successfully screened at the Los Angeles Animation Festival and the London Portobello Film Festival. My other animations range from short films, to web animations and character animation for games and e-learning videos.
My illustrations vary from hand drawn sketches, to digital renders with ink and paint. I am pretty flexible with content as I have a large range of skills to aid in designing characters, objects, sets, game concepts and creative conceptualisation.
I also have skills in web development and graphic design.
