Animation

2D and 3D Animation:

After doing a diploma specialising in sculpture at Falmouth school of Art and Design , I went on to do a degree in Computer Visualisation and Animation at Bournemouth University.

My first job on leaving university was working for King Rollo Films as a 2D artist on an animated television series called “Jakob” and then on a series of 15 short films. I later moved into digital compositing, before concentrating on 3D work.
