Animator at Walt Disney Animation Studios
"Samantha was my animation assistant on the short film Canvas, where we did hand-drawn animation in Photoshop. She assisted me by doing breakdowns and inbetweens on a shot I keyed out. Samantha is an incredible artist and wonderful to work with. She is very communicative, takes notes well, and meets her deadlines with ease. She showed a passionate willingness to learn on the job. Her drawing ability is excellent and versatile, and she was able to confidently match the style of the short. She has a great, positive attitude, and her passion shows in her work. I am confident that she will be a wonderful addition to any project and team, and I highly recommend her!"
I was elected by two writers to illustrate their new book being published through Jessica Kingsley Publishers. Provided 27 Illustrations on a 6 week schedule, including book's cover.
At the Swedish American Institute I drew guests upon request for the year end event: The Collectors and Cocktails Exhibition Party.
I was invited to the Ramsey County Library a few months later to be a special guest for their grand opening.
My tasks at Cambio Education included: Illustrating step by step illustrations and animation assets for Filmbook educational content, directing photo shoots for curriculum content, and staying coordinated and organized with team production members. I also occasionally assisted in other design projects, and created imagery for props that appear in the Studio Luma film.
