Cyndee Whitney- Disney Animator, Artist, Jewelry designer
Cyndee began her career as an animator at Disney Feature Animation where she worked on feature films. After working on The Little Mermaid, she transferred to the Disney Consumer Products division to manage the art of the apparel, toys, and other character driven merchandise for The Little Mermaid and numerous other films. Cyndee enjoyed 24 years at Disney working in many capacities and retired as global Director of Artist Development in the Consumer Products Division in 2003.
While at Disney, Cyndee was sent to numerous global destinations to recruit artists for regional offices. While there, she was greatly influenced by the colors, textures, scents, and sounds of each culture. She draws on those experiences to tell stories with her jewelry using found objects and images of mythical characters. Her feather pieces celebrate the beauty, endurance, and fragility of birds, and her character pieces represent an imagined adornment of another era.
