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 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.
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.
Hello! I'm an animator based in Toronto, Ontario and I specialize in digital frame-by-frame animation. I work digitally so a majority of my works use dark lines and are coloured in a vector style, but sometimes I like to merge the flat look of digital art and the tactile nature of physical art into one piece.
I also do 3D animation once in a while and I mostly create 3D models.
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.
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
