I am a freelance painter, illustrator and animator. I was born in 1994 and began drawing regularly. Many things captured my attention, but the fantastical illustrations of Rodney Matthews provided my most visceral moments of inspiration. These pictures, along with a continuation of other sources of inspiration, activated my childhood imagintion and I started inventing stories with toy animals to perform for my younger sister. Growing up, I kept a close connection to the inner, imaginative world, and through focusing on art and storytelling I graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 2016 with a first-class degree in Animation and several short films.
In Summer 2016, I worked on the hand-painted feature film Loving Vincent, and have since been exploring painting animation, making a short film with paint on canvas and developing illustration skills.
I studied and worked at the Chisholme Institute, from 2017 to 2019, a ‘school of self-knowledge’, where I took the responsibility of garden manager for one year and became a full-time student on the 40-day Intensive Discovering Unity course.
I now seek to work on uplifting creative projects, and am open to commissioned work in painting, illustration or animation.
