Marilyn Zornado, a rare, indigenous Portlander, is a director, animator, motion-graphics artist, calligrapher and book artist. After a career as Senior Producer at Will Vinton Studios, a pioneering stop-motion studio in Portland Oregon, she now works full-time as an artist, combining her love of animation with book arts, both on her own projects and on commissions. She teaches Motion Graphics at PNCA in the BFA program and Book Arts & Calligraphy in the PNCA Community Education Program. After the closure of the beloved Oregon College of Art & Craft in Spring 2019, where she had studied and taught for many years, she revamped the building that houses her studio to create ZORNADO Studio, a book arts classroom.
Other notable work includes animated illustrations for the PBS American Masters documentary on James Beard.
Marilyn has a MFA in Computer Animation and a BA in Graphic Design.
Marilyn is a member of the Motion Picture Academy of Arts and Sciences.
