A B O U T
I graduated in 2020 from Parsons School of Design with a BFA in illustration and focus in animation. Up for all projects big or small, I've always had an interest in narrative storytelling and love to create characters in their own worlds and environments. I enjoy working in many mediums, often combining them whenever I get the chance!
In addition to animation and illustration, I also love game design. Video games have always been a huge inspiration for my work and I think that they've become one of the most accessible tools for education and entertainment.
Every other week, I sit down with Kohana Wilson and a different independent animator for our podcast, Straight Ahead. Listen to new episodes wherever you stream your podcasts, or for free on our RSS feed.
I currently live in NYC and love to eat, bike, and get out in nature whenever I can :-)
Lije has shown animations in the following film festivals:
Calgary International FF, Seattle True Independent FF, New York Independent FF, San Francisco Independent FF, CineYouth FF, Los Angeles Student FF, & the Lift-Off FF
