Phoebe left Hurtwood and went on to graduate from the Slade School of Art with a BA in Fine Art Painting before going on to study 2D Character Animation at Central St Martins. She has exhibited work at the Royal Academy, Bonhams Bond Street and the Mall Galleries, and had her first solo exhibition at the Bahrain National Museum with a portraiture and oral history project entitled Bahrainona, exploring the diversity of the island’s population. This culminated in a published book of the same name.
Since beginning to animate, Phoebe has been commissioned to make work for BBC4, Smile For London, Sky, and production company 12foot6, exhibited moving image installations at the Old Vic Tunnels and 500 Dollars, and has been nominated for a number of awards for her handdrawn animation work, including Best Student Film in the Bradford Animation Festival, Best Animation in Rushes Soho Shorts, and Best Film twice in the British Animation Awards Public Choice. She was nominated and shortlisted for the Arts Foundation’s Fellowship in Animation for 2012, and won the first Sky Arts Ignition Futures Fund Award this year, which is providing the core funding to develop and produce a largescale multimedia narrative installation to be exhibited in 2013. Phoebe has a studio in Bermondsey, South London, and has recently become a mentor on the St Martins Animation MA.
