Yadnee Kohok was born and raised in India. Although she first graduated as a Computer Science major, she discovered that her true calling was in animation. Since then, she has been refining her skills in the art of visual storytelling while collaborating with other artists. She graduated in 2018 with an MFA in Animation from Savannah College of Art
and Design (Atlanta GA).
When she’s not animating, Yadnee can be found looking for stray animals to pet,
reading books or writing her bio in third person because, well, it has to be done.
(P.S. It's YAAd-neee.)
