Beryl Allee is a gregarious workhorse with a tendency to draw people turning into animals.
She primarily makes hand-drawn animated shorts, and is a natural storyteller. Her work uses dark humor to talk about pluralism and misguided belief. Her characters are flawed and complex, each with their own unique body types and subjective realities. Her installations and films raise questions about how to cohabitate with mutually exclusive worldviews. All of her work is influenced heavily by her practice as an avid painter and illustrator; incorporating rich palettes, stylistic composition, and atmospheric lighting.
Beryl is currently situated in Portland, Oregon as an Animator and Illustrator studying for her BFA in Animation at Pacific Northwest College of Art. She has a received a number of awards and honors for her work since 2009.
