Maybelle Peters is a London based artist and filmmaker working in film and CGI. Her practice focuses on storytelling using documentary, historical events, literature and oral narratives. She gained her bachelors degree in Animation at Farnham where she made her first commissioned film for BBC2. Her Channel 4 commissioned film, Mama Lou has been shown extensively at animation festivals including Annecy, Ottawa and the Edinburgh Film Festival as well as broadcast television. Her work was shown as part of ‘The Place is Here’ exhibition at Nottingham Contemporary and South London Gallery in 2017. Maybelle currently divides her time between working at the Royal College of Art as a technical instructor and continuing her practice which explores allegorical tales and myth making and more recently, looks at gleaning stories from objects, personal rituals and an archive of ephemera, gestures and sounds.
