I was first inspired to be an artist by my grandfather, Bill Ross. I would watch him paint pictures on my bedroom walls and make paintings for friends and family. Throughout my school age years, I would always be drawing my own characters, painting, or working with clay. I LOVED art! As a kid, I also loved comic books and cartoons. My passion for both, lead me to become an Animator.
I now have a Bachelors degree in Computer Science and Masters degree in Fine Art. I have over 5 years experience working as a Freelance Animator and have had the pleasure of working with many industry leaders and studios.
Throughout my career, my passion for drawing and painting has never changed. I still enjoy creating characters, now mostly for my son, and pursuing my own projects from colored pencil drawings to short animations.
Shortly after my son was born in 2015, I got into photography. I loved being able to capture life’s beautiful moments of my family and was soon asked to take pictures for family and friends too. I have a natural approach when it comes to my photography, and believe in capturing raw feelings and emotions in the moment.
Mack Bo Ross Studio was created to share my passion for Animation, Photography and Design services with the world by turning creativity into reality.
