As a conceptual artist for Twentieth Century Fox Animation and Walt Disney Feature Animation Studio, Suzanne Lemieux Wilson worked closely with the directors to develop the finished look of the films. She provided inspirational paintings, comprehensive sketches, color renderings, lighting designs, atmospheric visualizations, and style variations as well as ideas for characters, costumes, backgrounds and sets.
Suzanne brings a stellar artistic career to the industry having exhibited art internationally and won many awards for her paintings. This asset is demonstrated by the fact that her original art has appeared directly onscreen and that her designs from the films have been used for toys, books, posters, exhibition art, lobby displays, videos, advertisements, and publicity.
