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 a Brazilian multidisciplinary artist focused on Digital 2D & 3D Animation, as well as Traditional & Digital Painting.
I have over a year of freelance art experience, accompanied by over 3 years of costumer assistance.
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.
Studying Product Design at Edinburgh Napier University
I teach all types of animation at Northumbria University but I specialise in 3D animation.
I like to make photorealistic work and aim to use this in my project.
High & Strong attention to the details. - Paradise is in the details -
I am Industrial Designer, since 2007 I have combined the curriculum with the academic program of graphic design where I developed and acquired new skills in my professional career.
With a big LOVE to the letters and great passion for the arts, specially the attraction to the fascinating world of calligraphy and lettering, I like to create compositions based on the experimentation of different sources and techniques as well as sizes and surfaces.
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.
Professional 3D product designer at Solid ideas. Andy created multiple CAD prototypes of our most ingenious inventions!
Always curious about how things work, I enjoy tinkering and taking things apart. Not a fan of manuals, I prefer to figure things out. I'm a huge fan of repurposing and upcycling. Electronics and retro computing amaze me. My oldest computer, a Commodore PET 2001 has the funniest keyboard which I think was not designed for humans, but I love it to bits.
My name is Octavio, I'm 28 and I'm from Córdoba, Argentina.
I have a degree from Architecture College, and I've even worked as an architect for a short period of time.
Then I derived into illustration, and more precisely Concept Art, which is the field I currently work in as a freelancer.
Other than that, I like coffee on a cloudy/chilly sunday, reading my favorite book or watching a classic movie :)
