Hey there! My name is Rayna Desjarlais and I’m a First Nations 2D animator and illustrator with 7 years experience in both the animation and games industry.

I have experience working as a Lead Animator in TV production, helping to mentor junior animators to better understand the look and feel of the project while helping boost their confidence in the studio. I’ve worked with small teams to establish the style of new pilot projects, animated on promo clips, and I have some experience in supervisor work.

I’ve also worked as a freelancer as an animator and designer on a variety of different projects both big and small.

I always strive to be the best animator or designer I can be and will do my best to go above and beyond the typical standards. My goal is to one day create a series of animated shorts that tell the story of First Nations people, to try and reach out to a wide audience through design and storytelling to obtain an understanding that I think we are lacking. But until I can make that passion a reality, I’d love to be a part of your next project!

Thank you for taking the time to look at my work!
