After my MA in Animation at the RCA in 2001, I did lots of self-generated projects but was lacking formal structure and deadlines. I had also started teaching at the University of Westminster in the drawings and workshops, up to 2008. I was combining freelance work with being a mother, and the time at home with my daughter gave me opportunity to think about what was important
Before I came to the RCA, I was working in Ireland as a character animator on television shows and short films. I’d studied on a four-year animation degree in Dublin.
Initially, I was really impressed by the kinds of films I saw coming out of the RCA animation department. There’s a strong history of great short film making on the course, and they were just the kind of films I loved to watch
