I'm Robyn. I'm an animator, illustrator and motion graphics designer from Johannesburg, South Africa. By day I am a senior animator, animation director and project manager, and by night (and weekends) I am a freelance illustrator and designer. I've loved art from a very young age and it was this passion that led me to study animation, design and new media after I left school. I wanted to be able to bring my creations to life.

In the years since, my life has been full of creating cool content and experimentation in different media and software. I've worked on commercials, digital signage, 3d projection mapping, character animations, infographics, kinetic typography, character designs, illustrations, concept art for a card based game, logo designs, creating graphics for interactive software and mobile games and more.  I like to push myself and try any new thing that comes along, and I don't like to get too comfortable or complacent. I am experienced in 3ds Max, Maya, After Effects, Photoshop, Illustrator and Blender - and traditional mediums too.

I love what I do and am passionate about creating new things to capture the imagination and communicate ideas.

I also love cats - my best friend is a calico named Meowie McMeowington (there is an animation dedicated to her on my animation page) -  and any generally adorable creature. And reading - I am a fully fledged bookworm and could never survive without the written word (is it just me or does that sound kind of pretentious? - OH WELL, my bad)
