Hi! I'm Alexis, an Animator and Illustrator based in Brisbane, Australia.
I hold a Bachelor of Animation from Griffith University, and have been working in the industry since 2007.

I'm committed to producing high-quality 2D Animation and Illustration, with a particular expertise in Animal characters. I have a keen interest in Animal behaviour and physiology, as well as their welfare and conservation.

I enjoy producing work of high realism, as well as cartoon characters, and everything inbetween.

I look forward to meeting you!

Service Description

My professional experience lies mainly in producing high-quality animated video clips for large clients such as Australia Post, Beyond Blue, the Australian Psychological Society and College Humor.

For these and other clients I have created music videos, explainer clips, employee induction videos and animated DVD content.

The content of these clips ranges from warm, traditional character animation, often discussing sensitive content, to bright and clean motion graphics.

I am also employed in illustrative design, for purposes of marketing or concept development.

I am happy working closely with my clients, or running with a detailed brief to get your project completed on a quick schedule. Clear and open communication between myself and clients is of paramount importance, to keep us both on the same page, and thereby assure that the final product will be exactly what you are looking for.
