Artist Statement

I see myself as an illustrator-animator-storyteller; my goal is to bring life into the images and narratives I create. My style is strongly influenced by animations like Klaus (2019) and Arcane (2021), as well as countless independent illustrators. I am also a guitarist and singer-songwriter, and I often find myself inspired by the process of connecting my music and sound effects to animation, having done so for a number of student shorts. I’m aiming to pursue lighting or 2D animated effects in the industry.
