I am a Canadian artist who uses illustrated journals to record the realities of the world around me. Recently I spent 6 years (2011-2017) in East Africa which has been the source of my inspiration.
My Major Study project The Metamorphosis of a Bottle Cap is a stop motion animated film which incorporates illustration and 3D characters that I have created and animated by hand. Set in a developing nation this short film focuses on the repeated reuse of an object highlighting the creativity and ingenuity of the local people and is an example of the positive affects of cross-cultural exposure.
I currently reside in The Hague and am interested in creating more stop motion films for commercial use.
This portfolio includes a film teaser, the poster, and still frames.
