artist's bio

I'm interested in exploring themes of intimatism, nostalgia and finding joyous and peaceful moments in the context of an era of crisis and urgency. 


In July 2022, I graduated from MA Character Animation at CSM, where my final year film was nominated for a Mullenlowe NOVA  award, and was screened at Horse hospital, London along with films from my talented coursemates.  

My film was also exhibited in a group show of moving image artists with WCCD at Brew, Hull from 1st - 15th July 2022. 


I graduated from BA Graphic Communication Design at Central Saint Martins in June 2020, where I was nominated for a Maison/0 award and two pieces from my graduate collection were acquired by UAL's permanent art collection. View our class of 2020 graduate showcase here.

Throughout August 2020, my painting 'A Watery End' was featured on a billboard in Camden by Tate Collective

I've illustrated two books: the first, 'Growing So Well & Other Poems' written by Sunita Edirisooriya and self-published in August 2020. The second is children's book The Grumpy Lion written by Gillian Vessey and self-published in December 2020. 

Other work while studying animation includes directing an animated documentary sting for London International Animation Festival (screening November 2021 at the Barbican Centre) and an animated an advert for UK charity, The Children's society.
