Much of my inspiration comes from nature, which is why I feel at home in the realm of 2D effects, such as waves, rain, and reflections on water. Luckily, my team’s short film 'The Walk' provided plenty of opportunity to do exactly that (and to use research as an excuse to go hiking in the Highlands!). With concept art being my second specialism, I helped develop the film’s visual style and painted some of its backgrounds. For my other projects, I explored a range of styles, such as highly detailed pen drawings, but also digital paintings inspired by Japanese woodblock prints. In the end, it is all about the mood. I have a favourite way to go about it: always add a bit of mystery, the feeling that the world we are looking at is in truth larger than what we perceive.
