Artists can also have hobbies: Find glass panels and stuff on Pinterest


I'm an animator, formerly a painter, who has worked across many media. I moonlight in making stained and fused glass objects.

This site is mostly about my animations... short shorts mostly under 4 minutes, sheds, fish, old ladies, gender, and art. Some experiments in space, time and markmaking with a graphics tablet and a computer. You will find information, teasers and screenshots. If you want to watch the whole movie(s), suggest a collaboration, or talk about it...contact me

Animation for me is ongoing fun with drawings and paintings that move, with narrative, and with experimental collaborations... inspired by - among others - FooFoo, Roobarb, Gromit, Svankmajer, Mervyn Peake, teaching students, conversations with random friends and very random colleagues, words...beauty...my garden... Mostly, it's what I get up in the mornings for.


There is a section of recent non-animation projects - picture-story-books, illustrations and comics. This site also has a blog - mostly about animation and aspects of narrative, thoughts on how gender is represented, on how art works (or doesn't) and occasional diversions into teaching and learning, and self-indulgent nostalgia...

... and finally some biographical information and a sensible CV for those who need - or want - to know.
