I am Kimberly Cranfield, and I enjoy telling stories through art and animation, especially 2D. I have designed characters and created animations for commercials, games, film, and TV; notably Nickelodeon, Sesame Street, and Man of Action. I also illustrate for print such as books or apparel, create custom logos, and paint watercolors on the side.
- concept art

- storyboards and animatics

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 in 2009.
I currently do freelance animation and concept art at Magnetic Dreams Animation Studios.
Some of my inspirations:
…and of course the great artists and animators at Disney and Pixar.
…and also Caravaggio…just throwing that out there.
