Meet our Magnificent Makers
Little Inventors wants children to open their eyes to the world of invention and creativity. But beyond the invention drawings, there is a unique opportunity for children and makers, designers and artists to come together and collaborate to bring children’s imagination to life.
By taking children’s ideas seriously and presenting them in a professional manner through collaboration with skilled makers, we will help showcase children’s original ideas, perspectives and voices.
We also want to challenge the skills and experience of adult makers, and encourage them to push beyond their own limits by engaging with the highly imaginative and unhindered minds of young children.Do you make things?
Join the fun!
I am currently studying in OCAD University, in a program called Integrated Media. Mostly doing film and animation, or video installations. I am passionate about finding relations between the seemingly unrelated subjects, combine them to create an unique artwork.
I'm a 2d animator who dabbles in stop motion and clay moulding. I enjoy mixing analog and digital mediums to create hybrid installations. I am currently based in Toronto, pursuing a degree in Ocad University.
Hi, I'm Jennifer! I'm currently a student at OCAD University and I mainly work in 2D animation! I hope that with my skills, I can make things come to life as well as connect and bring joy to others!
Digital Mi'kmaq is an Indigenous-led ground breaking initiative, a program of Ulnooweg that aims to create lasting foundational change for Indigenous youth and communities through the interplay of science, culture, education and innovation.
From a young age I have had a fascination with all things mechanical:
how they worked and how they moved.
After a career in woodworking I can now devote my time to designing and building
As a retired physicist, I like to use my experience in electronics and skills in woodworking and 3D printing to create solutions to every day’s problems. I like to recycle obsolete electronic appliances and devices and harvest many of the still functioning components that often find a good use in my creations. I find the Little Inventors ideas a challenge to my creativity: how to reduce to practice, to make realistic models of the children’s extremely interesting conceptual ideas.
I'm Sofia, currently based in Lisbon, Portugal. I'm an animator most of the time, but I also do illustration and graphic design! I love creating funky animations with vibrant colors, textures, and a lot of movement. Sometimes I like to add some abstraction to my work and creating very busy and full animations. Most of my work is digital but I also like experimenting with stop motion using found objects to make animated collages.
Hi! I am a visual artist and animator based in Toronto, Canada. However, I am originally from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. When I'm not drawing, you'll find me walking around museums, exploring national parks or spending time with my family. My main work focuses on visual narratives through character design, portraits, caricatures or abstract images. Always experimenting with new techniques. I am equally comfortable with analog and digital technologies, and I use both according to the needs of the project.
The creativity of young minds is a driving inspiration for my work. I enjoy re-contextualizing children's artwork through in-depth collaboration with my craft work. Mixed media elements allow me to fully describe the emotion of a piece and reiterate unconventional characteristics of children's designs.
Hi! I’m Jade Chittock, a freelance photographer, videographer and creator of all things fun. I love working with others and creating mixed media material. Lets making something awesome together!
