Cliodhna is an animator with a first name that few outside of Ireland can pronounce. (N.B. it’s pronounced ‘Klee-nah’). Her parents named her after a lifeboat on the Aran Islands where she was born, for which she feels slightly jibbed as boats are usually named after people and not the other way round. She studied animation at Ballyfermot College in Dublin and later studied comics at the School of Visual Arts in New York. She has worked on both animated features and television for the past 15 years. She now works at Lighthouse Studios as an assistant director, most recently serving on El Deafo, the 2D adaptation for Apple TV+ of Cece Bell’s graphic memoir by the same name.
