Here are some details on Miss Mindy:

Miss Mindy is a Los Angeles native currently living and working out of her design studio. Her ‘Cartoon Folk Art’ ranges from fluid ink drawings and paintings, to her fabulously handcrafted, dimensional ‘Pop Up’ paintings. Miss Mindy is also a sculptress, and toy making aficionado specializing in One of a Kind creations, customizing Vinylmation™ & Vintage objects.

Born into a family of artists and designers, Miss Mindy was always surrounded by creativity. Her biggest inspiration was her grandmother Mary Ellison Allen, who worked as an ink and paint girl at Walt Disney Studios in the 1930’s, wore bright red lipstick and tiny blue polyester suits. In addition to her fine art career, Miss Mindy has been prolific in creating animation designs, stories & illustrations for several notable companies and has showcased many of her works around the world.

At the Imagination Gala event last weekend, one of the new series announced was the Designer Series, which will see Disney custom artists releasing a blind box series, with Miss Mindy being the first artist to be featured.    This series is due out in late 2015 and was one of the most popular announcements from the show and I myself am very excited about this series.

Miss Mindy has worked on many custom Vinylmation projects in the past including painting Vinylmations live at the WonderGround Gallery in Disneyland and will be the artist in residence during October at the Gallery.
