Classically trained and with 9 years of digital 2D animation experience under her belt, Mélanie is a character animator with a passion for acting and an eye for design.
Originally from a small Acadian village on the shores of New Brunswick's East coast, she moved to the Toronto area for animation school and graduated from Sheridan's classical animation program (Bachelor of Applied Arts - Animation.)
Since then, she has provided quality character animation on a wide range of TV series and has supervised animation on a feature film. She's also had the opportunity to dabble throughout the animation pipeline from R+D work, to concept art, to animated promos. She is currently an animation director at DHX Media. Mélanie is also a published children's book illustrator and a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators.
You can now find her in beautiful Vancouver BC scampering through the forest, dancing ballet, doing yoga, and trying her best to not look like a fool on her skateboard.
