Illustrator + Animator
Talk title to be announced…
Gemma is an animator, illustrator and story writer from Pembrokeshire. Her work has included animations for Penguin Books, music videos and short films.
When her grandmother (or “Gan-Gan” as she affectionately called her) passed away in 2010, Gemma was struck by all the items she left behind, and how they illustrated the passions, experiences and beliefs that shaped her life. As a way to weave together memories and possessions – and honor her grandmother – she made an animated video, which is nothing short of stunning.
