Liz Richards

I live and work in sunny Burbank, California with my husband, 3 kiddos, and lucky black cat.

 

I use a combination of animation, set design, and illustration daily in my career as a senior art director and concept artist for theme parks and animation. I was an Imagineer with Walt Disney Imagineering for 7 years, and I continue to work with Disney and other clients now as a freelance artist while I’m raising my young family.

 

Some of my favorite professional projects have been creating the blacklight murals for Star Tours, creating plants for the Na’avi River Journey for Pandora(Avatar) at Disneyworld, and recently working on the preshow for the newly opened Enchanted Tale of Beauty and the Beast attraction in Tokyo Disneyland.

 

I’m passionate about environment design and I believe background art is a crucial element of storytelling. I love collaborating and creating places with character.
