Hello! I’m Kimberly, and I enjoy telling stories and bringing dreams to life through 2D art and animation. I have designed characters and created animations for feature films, short films, trailers, commercials, games, music videos, and TV; notably Nickelodeon, Sesame Street, Man of Action, and Marvel. I also illustrate for print and have published interior and cover art for a children’s book series, The Dog Rescuers. I dabble in comp-art and VFX for video editing as well. On the personal spectrum, I enjoy painting in watercolors, that is, when I’m not tending to my bees and going on adventures with my dog.

I have studied graphic design and fine art for 3 years at the University of Tennessee, and have studied animation for 2 years at The Art Institute of Tennessee. I studied art in Florence, Italy in 2009. I currently do freelance animation and concept art at Magnetic Dreams Animation Studios, and have been lucky to work with them for nearly a decade now.
