Heather Burke - BA (Hons) Illustration with Animation

I am  an illustrator who’s practice consists of both two and three dimensional outcomes. Character design is at the heart of my craft. I enjoy bringing to life, often quite weird looking creatures, toying with the notion of anthropomorphism as my characters typically tend to depict personified animals. I favour traditional methods of design, usually beginning with pen and pencil illustrations which are then transformed into 3D pieces with materials such as polymer clay and ceramic. Storytelling plays a role in my creative process as each character conveys a narrative or even just a feeling that is unique and meaningful to each creation.
