GOING WHERE
THE COLD WIND BLOWS
- A lyrics by Lead Belly



Moze Maaike Mertens (1996)
Born in Utrecht, The Netherlands living in Vancouver, Canada. 

I focused during my Bachelors in Interactive/Media/Design studies on art in combination with politics. Animation was the perfect tool to combine stories, illustrations and music. I recently graduated in December 2021 from the Vancouver Film School with an award-winning animated short film called "Alledoags" - which has been selected and screened several festivals all over the world - for example: at the Ottawa International Animation Festival 2022.

At the moment Moze works as a freelance artist in animation and works as a full-time Teaching Assistant for Classical Animation with paper and digital production at the Vancouver Film School in Canada.
