About

My name is Anna and I make things. I work as an animator and illustrator and in my spare time try out weird up-cycle tutorials I find online. I’ve been sitting alone at lunch tables with a sketchbook since I was 8, and love to create things and help people make things. I am experienced in Adobe Creative Suite and OpenToonz, BFA Grad in Animation and Illustration, and I have a couple of years in teaching and freelancing to boot. I am always looking for the next thing to busy my brain with. Let’s meet up sometime and chat.
