Hello, my name is Mariana and am I currently based in Richmond, California. However, I would easily move to other countries or cities in order to pursue a career.

I graduated from the Animation Track at the Gnomon School of Visual Effects in Hollywood, California, and I have a Bachelor's in Visual Arts (Brazil).


I've always loved animation since I was little; I worked on my first basic animation when I was 8. I'm mostly traditionally based, but I'm also proficient in 3D animation in Maya and I'm always open to learning new things.

I really enjoy working on action shots - like battles and fight cycles for  games - and also shots with focus on lip syncing.

My goal is to become a lead animator,or even a producer, someday, but right now I'd like to polish my skills and get some experience in the industry.


If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact me!
