I am an animated filmmaker based in East London. I’ve been making films for 21 years. My films are experimental in form and often centred upon real life people or events. I often employ methods from my printmaking background, and always try to explore and stretch the material possibilities of the medium. My films have travelled widely to international film festivals and won many awards including a BAFTA nomination for I’m OK in 2019.  I have enjoyed sharing my practice through workshops and collaboration with The Creative Research Collective, NIE Theatre and artist Emily Tracy amongst others.  I am an associate lecturer at University of The Arts, London.

What is your favourite British animation of all time?

At the moment my two favourite British animations are Two Faces by Alison De Vere (1968) and Damon the Mower by George Dunning (1972).

What’s the best thing about working in the industry?

Being on the independent, experimental side of things I’m definitely on the edge of the animation industry but I really like to observe and participate when I can.
