Stunning everybody with her highly recognizable use of color and whimsical ideas in her works for Netflix Animation, Passion Pictures, Blue Zoo Animation and Bright Agency, Izzy Burton has skillfully managed to master a dreamy yet vibrant aesthetic. Growing up, Izzy spent most of her childhood hidden in her garden drawing animals from encyclopedias or writing stories and illustrating them.
Growing up her biggest passions were for Maths and Art and thought animation perfectly combined the two.

However, after winning Best Final she decided she could live without Maths, but she couldn’t live without art.
