Hello! My name is Manuela, and I am a 2D animator and character designer who wants to bring as many ideas to life as possible, so I created this special place to show it.
I was originally born in Caracas, Venezuela. However, life took me to other wonderful places like Colombia, Guatemala, United Kingdom, and United States. Even though I had to start over on multiple occasions , my love for the arts and animation never changed, in fact, this made me stronger enough to pursue a creative career, and I became a student at Savannah College of Art and Design. During my time at SCAD, I have improved my academic and artistic skills, in both traditional and digital media, which also involved being open to other different areas that the animation field possesses.
It is a very cliché thing to say, but I think it is amazing that through drawings you can give life to absolutely anything! With this I knew that 2D animation was the thing I had to do. I consider 2D animation a field where you can learn many other things that enhance your creative skills, like character design. Creating characters that fit their traits and story, and then animating them according to these is a very fascinating thing.
To engage audiences with animation and authentic characters is also a reason why I chose this field. I always hope to improve my skills with time and connect with other people through it. As long as I have my hair tied up, I am ready to work and do my best!
Thank you for your time.
