I was born in the Midlands where I spent most of my childhood climbing trees, making bases and drawing cut-away boats and houses. My early inspirations were; The Beano, Usbourne puzzle adventure books and my gran’s fastidious cake decorating skills. All of this culminated in my studying illustration at The Norwich School Of Art. Here I began to dabble in animation and explore narrative in my drawing. Following this interest, I decided to study animation for a further two years at the RCA in London. After graduating in 2010, I began work as a director and designer at Studio AKA and helped to establish MOTH Collective, a collective of friends excited about drawn animation.
