I love making images and telling visual stories and am constantly experimenting with approaches, materials and techniques.

My work has many strands. Making portraits gets me under the skin of the subject in many of the same ways getting under the skin of an animation character.Animation design and illustration for me are closely linked complimenting, expanding and providing a subtext to the script. Animation has always been a natural development.

The Magic of animation found me just before I completed my MA at The Royal College of Art.
