1964 to 1969 degree in 3 dimensional design at Leeds College of Art.
After completing a post-graduate course at Bristol University in Radio, Film and Television Production I started my career in art as an animator in 1970 with a company called Halas & Batchelor. The first major series I animated on was, “The Jackson 5ive.”
Over the past 40 years I have worked as a key animator on many TV commercials and series, including Superted, The Beatrix Potter collection, The Animals of Farthing Wood, The Forgotten Toys, Snailsbury Tales and more.
I have also worked on the feature films, “Watership Down,” “The Twelve Tasks of Asterix,” and, “Lucky Luke and the Daltons.”
In 1998 I directed on my first animation series that was aired on the BBC. This was called, “Little Monsters,” and was based on a set of books by Tony Garth. I have since directed other television series including, “The Likeaballs,” “The Dorkhunters form Outer Space,” “Zorro,” and the third series of, “Horrid Henry.”
