BA (Hons) Animation
I am a puppet and set fabricator, passionate environmentally sustainable art activist and educator.
I enjoy all aspects of crafting and fabrication, from maquette sculpting to mould casting and puppet costume sewing; and I love Dragonframe.
My focus is on creating environmentally sustainable puppets for Stop Motion Animation and art objects in general.
Having recently completed a creative degree in Animation I have flipped my career in the corporate, non-creative business world of more than 20 years, which is rather an additional value to my skills and qualities, to creative, experimental Stop Motion animation.
Collaborating alongside fellow fabricators, animators, and creative practitioners from a range of broad, artistic, inspiring disciplines is a key part of my practice.
My belief that creativity is key to the progress of the future prompted me to found a small voluntary project Art 4 Youth, which is offering free art education to children from disadvantaged backgrounds.
