MA work

My work is very self-reflective. I like to pick apart my personal struggles, and then employ awkward animated creatures to act them out.


I look to explore how a seemingly small moment in a relationship can have a profound effect on you inside. The uncomfortable situations, snide remarks or accidental compliments all work to inform your relationships, whether they are romantic, friendly or otherwise. I use animation to delve into the physical manifestation of these internal battles.
