|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.
