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?

I'm an animator and model-maker based in Northumberland. I combine digital animation techniques with more traditional methods like stop motion. I enjoy sharing my skills with others - I'm an Associate Lecturer at Northumbria University and an animation mentor with TICE - introducing children to what it is like working in creative industries.
Joan Nuguid is a Filipina born artist residing in Toronto, Canada. At best, her work is intimate and personal, deeply inspired by her daily life and experiences as an immigrant woman. She is interested in telling compelling stories that are both complex and easily digestible. Her work has been shown locally in The Ignite Gallery, The Ada Slaight Gallery, The Little Inventor’s program supported by NSERC and recently in Paradise Theatre for TAIS. Her upcoming works include another project with The Little Inventors team and Video Fever 2022 hosted by TSV. Currently she’s pursuing a BFA in Ocad University.
Hello, I am Ben, an animation professional out of Toronto, Canada. I work in an animation studio and do freelance design and illustration on the side.

I am an animation student at OCAD University. I enjoy bringing stories to life through animation. I love working to improve my skills by practicing!
My favourite colour is blue and I also love rabbits and cats.
Hello, my name is Robert and I am very excited to partake in making a little inventor's idea come to life! I am in my final year at OCAD University and think this is a wonderful opportunity to apply my skills, while learning and growing along the way. When I am not working on class assignments or personal art projects, I enjoy reading and playing video games.
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!
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 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.
