About / Contact

I am an animator and illustrator, telling stories through digital and analogue drawing, film and installation projection. I graduated with an MA in animation from the Royal College of Art and have produced animated shorts, music videos and commercials for a broad range of clients ever since, alongside which I produce my own moving image work for presentation at film festivals, galleries and online. 

Projects include:

At the Kitchen Table - animated migrant food stories, commissioned for the Migration Museum’s immersive exhibition 'Room To Breathe'. Visit project showcase

Projected backdrops for Ensemble Molière's 'Pygmalion', their all ages staging of Rameau's 17th century opera updated to modern day Paris. Performed at Stroud Green and Brighton Early Music Festival. Visit website

Animated portraits of Jack White and The Edge, created for Davis Guggenheim's acclaimed guitar documentary It Might Get Loud.

The music video for Liz Green's 'Displacement Song', winner of Best Music Video at the British Animation Awards 2012.

'Compassion for Voices' both a research film and therapeutic tool, made in collaboration with Kings College London, about the compassionate approach to relating with voices. Visit project website

'Cannabis Beats', a music video unravelling the highs and lows of cannabis use, made with UCL's psychopharmacology team and young people at Music and Change UK. Visit website

...and lots more.

My short films have screened at the BFI London and in festivals worldwide. I've been a jury member for The British Animation Awards and Czech Republic's Anifest; I have participated in panel discussions at the Migration Museum, Birds Eye View and Underwire Festivals.

My ongoing Meeting Trees project is taking me all around Britain to meet heritage trees to draw their portraits, highlighting their remarkable stories and ability to connect people across the centuries.
