Clio Wagner- Media Outreach Coordinator, Cartoonist, and Arts Educator

I am a 2022 graduate of California State University Northridge, where I studied 2D/3D Art and Animation, focusing on Pre-Production, Storyboard, and Visual Development. I currently work full time for Art Trek, Inc. as their Media Outreach Coordinator, and I also teach a weekly after-school animation class through Art Trek. My personal artwork focuses on 2D character design, prop design, environment design, and storyboards.

I had a passion for storytelling as a child, and over the years I have developed the skills to better share my stories to an audience. In elementary school, I enjoyed creative writing, reading, and watching cartoons that inspired me to draft new stories.

Today, I am motivated by my students and fellow teachers, as well mutual friends from CSUN and followers on Instagram; I owe my passion to the people that inspired me to pursue my dreams.

My instructors and counselors had encouraged me to pursue a career doing what I loved, and I discovered a whole world waiting for me as I began to study art. I have a deep gratitude for my professors who have helped shape me into the artist and storyteller I am today, and I hope to pass on what I've learned to my own students. One of my goals in life is to provide affordable and accessible arts education to my community, and I am happy to work for a nonprofit that has that shared goal with me.

I currently live in Southern California, where I grew up, with my parents and my younger brother. Outside of drawing and writing, I enjoy reading comic books, cross country running, and acting.
