Royal College of Art, London after studying illustration (Timothy) and film

a variety of people, with polish animators Walrian Borowczyk and Jan Lenica and
then progressing on to work with writers Franz Kafka, Bruno Schulz, Robert
Walser and Michel de Ghelderode and a variety of other puppeteers and
