I have loved art since I was a little girl. I am drawing and making up stories as long as I can remember. So it wasn't very difficult to me to decide to study something which has to do with Art and Storytelling. I studied an all around animation course at an Art Institute in Belgium. After I graduated in Belgium I wanted to learn more about the art of bringing characters to life, not just let them move. I learned the basics of animation but I wanted to let people feel that a 3D character can have a real personality with real emotions. So I decided to take a course in Character Animation at the University of Arts in London.
My first professional project started as my final project at the Arts University in London. I found a company that was happy to support me in exchange of creating a 3D CGI pilot for a pre-school series, my final project: “ Ubi”. My Final Project was a success! So after graduating I started working on this project as a Character Animator, Concept Artist, Modeler, Writer, Producer and Director Assistant. Now this project is on hold waiting for investors and TV channels to buy it, so all the little children can enjoy Uki! And I have to look for another 3D child to be born.
