About me

I am a Stop Motion Animator and Model Maker currently working for my own business, 'Home In Miniature', creating and selling model houses. I also make puppets and sets for animation, make stop motion music videos and paint in oils for commissions. 'Home In Miniature' was featured in 'Country Life', 'The Times', and 'Chichester Observer'.

I have worked on an animated music video for Hannah Rose Platt and the punk band 'Drones'. Previously, I worked on 'Strike' as a model, set and puppet maker and compositor. I also created an online advertisement for 'Archibald Shaw' featuring flamingo and beaver puppets.

I graduated in 2014 with a first in Animation from The University for the Creative Arts, Farnham.
