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 love to paint and make quirky illustrations. I also scupt using clay, and some non traditional materials such as paper mache and also cement. I often make characters that tell stories from a lightly surreal perspective. Problem solving and translating an image into a 3D object makes me excited. I sew original stuffed creatures with painted faces, and am known at home for (usually) being able to fix things, or at least make them more beautiful. Working with my hands, getting them messy, getting out my tools and my paintbrushes is what makes me excited.

Hi, I'm a maker and educator from Nerve Belfast Creative Learning Centre. I love all things creative and am always up for a challenge and working collaboratively with other inventors and makers.
I live in Long Beach, California, USA. I live in a house full of tools and scrap materials so I can make something any time I feel inspired. I've always been a maker, starting with popsicle sticks, coat-hangers, legos and tape as a child. Lately I've been working on inflatable underwater robots. I would love to help children learn to make their ideas into reality.
I am a designer with a focus on ideas. I like to find inspiration in nature and organic forms and my process is led by making and experimentation. My past studies in Art and Design at Falmouth University gave me a freedom in my creativity and I like to experiment in a wide variety of materials.
