BA (Hons) Animation
BTEC ND in Graphic Design

Right after graduating I started my career as an prop maker and set dresser for the stop motion animation industry at Aardman Animations, in Bristol, England. Then worked as a costumier at The Royal Exchange Theatre, in Manchester, England. In the evenings I also worked as a Photoshop andIllustrator instructor at the local college.

To expand my artistic horizons and to pursue my love for film and animation, I retrained as a computer visual effects artist and went on to work on some of the top Visual effects studios in the world, both in England and Canada, working as a digital paint artist on high-end projects like the Harry Potter film saga and Star Wars Episode VIII.

In the meantime, I continued my traditional artistic formation and kept developing new skills in drawing and painting in many different media and styles, and attended numerous workshops with some international artists. At the Classical Realism Atelier I study drawing and painting under Mandy Boursicot, and have also been an assistant teacher when needed.

I teach Watercolour at the Classical Realism Atelier and also Portrait & Life Drawing for the North Vancouver Arts Council, and am a private mentor for children/teens trying to advance their art skills.
