Return to Fable Grove


A live action short film that blurs the lines between the whimsical and macabre, Return to Fable Grove is a psychological thriller that explores themes of family dynamics, psychosis, and memory. Through a blend of gritty narrative, campy puppetry and 80's nostalgia, the film tells the story of Eli Walker, an estranged son who returns to his childhood home only to be confronted by his traumatic past. He experiences a warped reality which is manifested through the world and characters of an 80's TV puppet show 'Welcome to Fable Grove'.

I'm a concept artist who enjoys to deliver in many different art forms including production design, animation and costume. I am especially passionate about intriguing costume silhouettes, compelling but meaningful storytelling and developing surreal environments. I am very driven and thrive in social settings and collaboration.
