Tania Norris


Tania McKnight Norris joined WED (Walt Disney Imagineering) in 1964 as an Interior Designer for Disneyland’s New Orleans Square. While working on the project, she was fortunate to travel with Walt and Roy Disney, members of their families, and other WED staff to New Orleans, Florida, and New York. Tania worked on many Disney projects, the last one being The Haunted Mansion, where her designs included the now-famous wallpaper that is found on artwork and Disney Parks & Resorts merchandise around the globe. Tania left WED for a position as Project Designer for R.M.S. Queen Mary in Long Beach. Her later career included radio and television shows dealing with antiques and books. Her hobbies include being a rosarian and a botanical artist, which led to collecting herbals and botanical books spanning from the fifteenth to the twenty-first centuries, which now reside at the Getty Research Institute where she volunteers as a consultant. She is involved with botanical art projects at the Botanical Center at the Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens. Tania is a member of the Culinary Historians and the prestigious book collectors group, the Zamorano Club.
