I’m Kelly Turner and I am a self taught Motion Graphics Artist and 2D Animator located on the Northern Beaches in Sydney Australia. I studied 3D Animation at JMC Academy in Ultimo at the beginning of 2021 after receiving an early entry offer following my year 12 major work. After completing two trimesters at JMC Academy there was a discussion about the specific areas in the art of animation we would like to pursue. Based of the work I had done and what areas I felt the most suited too I decided to pursue 2D Animation and Motion Graphics. After conversations with lecturers it was clear I would not be able to reach my goals in the current course I was enrolled in.
I decided to teach myself everything I wanted to learn about animation and with a lot of practice and commitment I was fortunate enough to gain an internship at Laundry Lane Productions in Brookvale, Sydney. I was introduced to the business side of the industry where I could see a project develop from the brief to finished product. My first foot in the door could not have been more beneficial to my growth and I will be forever grateful for the 5 months I spent there.
I absolutely love what I do and I will be doing it for the rest of my life. I love creating a piece of art I can be proud of and sharing it with the world.
