I grew up in the Skeena Valley surrounded by the coastal mountains of Terrace BC. Like many artists and animators, I drew and created obsessively all throughout my childhood. After graduating I sought new experiences travelling around the globe for several years, selling my paintings and pursuing other creative endeavors until I discovered Halifax, Nova Scotia. In the rugged Atlantic I decided to pursue an education and career in animation. I now have over 9 years under my belt in the thriving Canadian animation industry, and have been involved in nearly all stages of animation production: Art Direction, Character and FX Animation, Concept Art and Environment Design.
I live now in Vancouver BC with my wife Lydia - a talented Art Jeweller and Metalsmith -https://lydiabuxton.com/- daughter Savann and our cat Sojourn.
