I create moving pictures for businesses to promote themselves or explain concepts to their employees.
When I was younger the world of film and visual effects really captivated me and I decided that I wanted to work in the film industry. The next step was finding a university that would give me the skills needed to be a visual effects artist or animator. I enrolled at AFDA in Johannesburg and majored in Visual Effects. In 2013. I decided to do my honours in Digital Art at the University of the Witwatersrand where I also did experimental film as an elective. After various digital creative jobs, I evolved to be more occupied with corporate work as there was a greater need for motion design and explainer videos. I now do freelance compositing and vfx when the opportunity arises but 2D animation is where I spend most of my working hours.
I love doing any form of art so anything involving images, moving or static, I enjoy. I want to keep on learning and hone my skills. I don’t think I would ever move away from this field of work. I am currently doing courses in 3D modelling and eventually want to work in the games or animation industry as an environment artist. As a Digital Artist you are constantly challenged to learn new programs and be on top of new technologies, so it’s an ever stimulating and rewarding field.
I love a good old toasted peanut butter and jam sandwich or a toasted almond butter, honey and banana sandwich.
Yes, there was a time where I felt I was just doing other people’s projects and really needed to do more creative projects for myself. It came down to making time for what I wanted to work on and what I found interesting as well as doing my day job.
go outside and take a deep breath. Making a cup of tea and sitting in the grass for 5 minutes can make all the difference.
I really do get inspired by what others have created. It makes me realise that anything is possible. The #drawthisinyourstyle challenge was really inspiring to take an artist’s image and recreate it in your own style.
Working with many different companies both business to business and business to consumer clients. No job is the same and being a freelancer I can plan my schedule accordingly and have a fun day if I really need it.
My parents! They let me study what I wanted and never made me feel like pursuing a job in a creative field was a wrong choice. They always supported me and my dreams.
I would be Catwoman because I love her personality and feline charisma. She is on the fence between doing good and committing crime but she is still a good person deep down. Also I love Batman and the DC universe, I admire ordinary people that don’t have superpowers but are still heroes.
If I could have any superpower it would be to have infinite luck. I want to have close by parking spaces and always have a good hair day.
Time management and knowing when to take a break. I’m still working on this but when I get in the zone I can go for many hours without getting up. I wear a fitness tracker that tells me to get up every now and then.
