I’m a pre-production designer in the entertainment industry. I started as a pre-production artist in China for an animated feature film and proceeded to be a concept artist in England for the video game industry.
One of the early influential forces for my life in animation was the animated film Princess Mononoke, it’s rich themes of harmonic co-existence with nature spoke deeply to me. What I didn’t realise until much later, was I mistook that influence into animation rather than it’s themes with nature.
Facing a blind alley in the entertainment industry I headed to the Amazon Jungle to rekindle some artistic inspiration. I found it in the form of the sacred plant medicine Ayahuasca. So started a three year journey with the different sacred medicines of the world over various continents.
I began to experiment with forms of art outside of painting and design work including film, writing and public speaking. What I found throughout this was what had been missing from my art was myself and the values that are important in my life. A life in animation was not wasted, for it is a great tool to bring across those values and themes.
So I now come back to my painting and design work to fully bring across what I learnt with the sacred plant medicines of the world. Stay tuned!
