My Work Printer friendly CV

Highly experienced across the board, Matt has worked for over 20 years in both live action and animation, for film, TV, advertising, music and events.

Adaptable and calm under pressure, he enjoys the diversity of jobs that he works on and the variety of clients. "It's always great to see a director light up when they see their script turned into images for the first time, giving them confidence and belief in their vision as a whole..." says Matt.

Whether you know exactly what you want, or would like creative input at an early stage, Matt is just as at home suggesting ideas and creative solutions as he is at committing those ideas to images. Using a simple line and minimal tonal palette, he is most suited to creating non-fussy, energetic artwork, that connects with the viewer.

"My style is really born out of necessity and the demands of the deadline-driven culture we live in…"
