About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Freelance Illustrator
Location Rochester, New York, United States
Introduction My name is Anna. I grew up on a small farm in upstate NY. I currently work out of my art studio/gallery out of the Anderson Arts building in Rochester, New York. My favorite mode of communication is dimensional illustration, meaning I work primarily with puppets. It is a fun way of working because I get to be in control of every aspect in a piece. I get to be the actor, makeup artist, costumer, set designer, photographer and director. My dream job is to be a freelance picture book or editorial illustrator.
Interests When I'm not working on, looking at and dreaming about art; I'm probably ballroom or Latin dancing, reading or jamming to folk music.
Favorite Movies Lord of the Rings, Mirrormask, Oh Brother Where Art Thou, The Secret of Kells, Coraline, Pride and Prejudice
Favorite Music Jonsi, Jack Johnson, Janis Joplin... pretty much anyone with a J name
Favorite Books Anne of Green Gables, Grimm's Fairy Tales, Winnie the Pooh, the works of Shakespeare.

You can punch a hole in an apple using a straw. How do you think that makes your milkshake feel?

Still pretty confident. Have you ever tried punching a straw into an apple? Yeah, no juice comes out. It's kind of a classic disappointment for 2nd graders.
