We are thrilled to be able to have the work of Nalena Kumar as a part of our Silent & Live Art Auctions at the 13th Annual Art Gala!  Kowa Bunbun (18″ x 24″ – Acrylic on wood)  is a wonderfully playful piece donated by this San Diego freelancer.

Originally from Portland, Oregon, Nalena is a San Diego based animator, motion graphics designer, and illustrator. She creates stunning imagery with a full understanding of video production from concept to creation. Her broad range of skills provide a multitude of creative solutions, including concept design, art direction, storyboarding, 2D compositing, 3D animation, and motion design.

Nalena’s personal illustrations and paintings tell stories in a cute, dark and humorous light and reflect her animation influences. She received her BFA in Character Animation from Disney’s Calarts.
