Artist Statement

For Tardigrade, I used a song by Cosmic Sheldrake that featured my friend Nicole Dewart's characters. It was one of my most ambitious and experimental animations I’ve done. I experimented with different camera shots as well as other elements like the fire and water.

Poodle with Ball is an animation I created as part of the bouncing ball assignments in The Basic Principles of Animation. I believe that even the most “basic principles” can be applied to any ambitious work. This is what inspired the creation of Poodle with Ball.
