Hello I am a recent Animation & VFX graduate with a 1st Class Honours degree from Norwich University of the arts. I have obtained experience working in the creative industry as an illustrator, designer, and animator. I previously worked as a 2D designer and VFX animator with the animation studio CharacterShop to collaborate and create an animated commercial for the 2022 Commonwealth games in Birmingham. I have also recently worked as an illustrator with Philip Browne Menswear. I created a series of illustrations for the release of three new colour-ways of New Balance's 2002R trainers, available in lilac, blue and grey. These illustrations were used by Philip Browne Menswear as large scale canvas prints, used in their window display along with the matching pair of trainers.
