My name is Rebecca Rees. I studied illustration and design at The Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. I am married and the mother of two wonderful boys; one is a college graduate and the other is currently attending college. Since they are growing up, I have more time to myself which I enjoy channeling into my drawing and painting.

I only work with traditional paper. NO DIGITAL WORK. I don’t know how to do that anyway. I paint with ink, watercolor, acrylics, colored pencils and whatever else is lying around my house.

I am inspired by the elegance and simplicity of japanese ‘sumi-e’ and Chinese ‘shui-mo hua’ painting. I love the grace and beauty of bamboo.

My professional background is 20 years in the animation industry, most of those years have been spent at Walt Disney Feature Animation. I trained at Disney under the guidance of Eric Larson. During my years at Disney, I worked as an animator, asst. animator, storyboard artist and animation development. My list of credits include: “Who Framed Roger Rabbit”, “Beauty and the Beast”, “Aladdin”, “Mickey’s Christmas Carol”, “The Fox and the Hound”, “Lady and the Tramp II – Scamps Adventure”. I was also a Directing Animator on “The Brave Little Toaster”; animator on “The Chipmunk Adventure”. Below is a link to my IMDB (International Movie Data base) page info:

If I can capture an expression and the character of the …
