Kelly grew up on the east coast. After a childhood of 80s cartoons and great 90s animated features, she followed the sun west to pursue her dreams of animation. After a short side step (10 yrs) as videographer in the US Air Force, she made her way to LA to break into animation as a revisionist. She got her first break with Mike Young Productions. She learned a lot and was able to take that experience to Disney TV animation where she leveled up to a board artist on shows like Elena of Avalor and Alice’s Wonderland Bakery. Along the way she married and had a rambunctious little boy with 3 dogs and 2 cats…how does she do it. When she’s not creating whimsical storyboards, you can find her creating spaces, homesteading and working on her tiki bar.
