About The Artists:
Lorelay Bové: As part of a family of gifted artists (her father is renowned painter Quim Bové) art has always been a way of life for Lorelay Bové, who was raised in the Principality of Andorra, Spain. Educated at the prestigious California Institute for the Arts, a school founded by Walt Disney to foster young creative talent, this exciting young artist has made an impact on the art and animation world almost immediately upon her arrival. After making her entry into the animation industry as an art intern at Pixar Animation Studios, Lorelay quickly transitioned into her current role as a Visual Development Artist at Walt Disney Animation Studios. As a visual development artist for Disney, Lorelay’s conceptual artwork has been extremely influential in the visual direction of films such as: The Princess and the Frog, Tangled, Winnie the Pooh, Wreck-it Ralph, Big Hero 6, and the Frozen Fever short. Currently she is working on Disney’s upcoming film Gigantic as an art director.

Mingjue Helen Chen is an Art Director and Illustrator currently based in Los Angeles. She graduated from the Academy of Art University in 2010 and has since contributed to many notable film projects, which include: Frankenweenie, Paperman, Wreck-it Ralph, and Big Hero 6. In addition, she has also contributed to several comic book titles including DC Comics’s Gotham Academy, Batgirl, and Marvel’s Sinister Silk. You can find more of her work at mingjuechen.carbonmade.com

She studied graphic design at the Ecole Superieure D’Arts Graphiques in Paris, France. Claire now lives in Venice Beach, California, with her husband and kids. She is the author of the picture book, Once Upon A Cloud.

Lisa Keene: Throughout the history of The Walt Disney Studios and its unparalleled role in shaping the course of animation in film, few artists have been able to contribute on the scale and scope that Lisa Keene has over the last 28 years. After studying art at USC and The Art Center College of Design, Lisa went on to become a major artistic influence in some of the most beloved Disney Classics of all time. Her first role with the studio was as a Background Artist for The Black Cauldron (1985) and her career as a Background Painter, Stylist, Character Designer, Visual Development Artist and Art Director has since spanned four decades. Her resume includes such films as The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, The Rescuers Down Under, Princess and the Frog, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Tangled and many more.

Brittney Lee is a visual-development artist at The Walt Disney Animation Studios. A graduate of the Rochester Institute of Technology, she knew that she would pursue a career in animation from the moment she saw The Little Mermaid at age 6. Brittney currently lives in Los Angeles with her husband and their small orange cat. Her handiwork can be found in Frozen and Wreck-it Ralph as well as the Disney short films Paperman and Get A Horse! She is currently busy working on not –yet-announced projects.

Victoria Ying grew up in Southern California with the sun and surf. She started her career in the arts by falling in love with comic books, this eventually turned into a career working in Animation. She loves Japanese Curry, putting things in her shopping cart online and taking them out again and hanging out with her one eared cat. Her film credits include Tangled, Wreck it Ralph, Frozen, Paperman, Big Hero 6, and Moana.
