Christina S. Nerland was born in Temuco, Chile in 1988, but was adopted to Norway at three months old. She decided to become an animator at five years of age after seeing Disney's Aladdin. From a young age she taught herself the basic principles of animation and drawing before slowly starting to approach filmmaking in high school. She studied for a bachelor's degree in animation at Hedmark University College in Norway and later an MA in character animation at Central Saint Martins in London. Since graduating, she has worked for Nexus Productions and at Lupus Films on their 2016 Christmas special We're Going on a Bear Hunt.
