About the Speaker
Ana Ramirez joined Pixar Animation Studios as an intern in 2013. After completing schooling at California Institute of Arts (CalArts), Ramirez returned to Pixar in 2015 as a full-time sketch artist. Ramirez worked as a sets shading designer on the Academy Award®-winning feature films Coco (2017) and Toy Story 4 (2019). She also recently served as a background artist on the Academy Award®-nominated short film, Burrow (2020). As an artist, Ramirez works with the art departments to help develop the visual look of a film’s characters, set dressings, graphics, shading, and overall color. She is currently working on an upcoming unannounced Pixar project.
Prior to working at Pixar, Ramirez did freelance work for Google, DreamWorks Television, Jib Jab, and FOX. Raised in Guanajuato, México, Ramirez’s primary schooling took place in México and a short period in the United States. After high school, she moved to France to attend ESMA Montpellier Art School, and then returned to the States to study at CalArts where she earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Film and Video.
