about



hello there :) !

I’m Izzy, a Concept Artist, Illustrator, Art Director & Director located in London, UK.

I am known for my bold use of colour, poetic storytelling and whimsical ideas.

I directed the award-winning short film “Via” - click here to watch.

In January 2018 my short film "Via", that I directed and created at Blue Zoo, was released and has since been doing the festival circuit, winning several awards such as Best Animation and Best Concept Art. You can read more about the production of "Via" on my post here.

In Spring 2018 I was named one of Animation Magazine’s “Rising Stars” of 2018 for my work as a Director.

I graduated from Bournemouth University with a First Class degree in Computer Visualisation and Animation in 2015, and won Best Final Year Film award for my film that I Directed with a team of 3 other students - click here to watch.

I started at Blue Zoo Animation as a Concept Artist straight after University (August 2015) after they saw my final year film. My start was delayed by my wish to carry out my remaining few weeks interning at Boomf Marshmallows as the winner of their Featured Illustrator competition (I was selected as a winner by James Middleton (boomf), Nick Jenkins (Moonpig/Dragon's Den) and illustrator Veronica Dearly).

I am always trying to explore, learn and expand my knowledge base and art skills, so please don't hesitate to send me proposals for work that will push me out of my comfort zone (though comfort zone work is very much appreciated also! aha) Please see below for my full CV of work experience and skills.


To sum it all up, I am a passionate storyteller and do my very best to instil this passion into my art, filmmaking and writing, in a hope that I can produce work that is captivating in both story and subject. My current goals include making a second short film and writing & illustrating a children's book.
