Said "For anyone listening, I am currently trying to be a mom and an artist at the same time :-P No, not easy. I have a sale I'm working at next weekend, which will hopefully yield some new fans and customers. I am trying to get a Cop Dog image to match the fireman one. I'm just North of Boston so this seems appropriate right now. Cheers to everyone!"

So, I hate using things that have trademarks and copyrights, but this will show people what I can do, and these aren't for sale. This is a piece I did for my husband. My husband is an English teacher and he uses three stories at the beginning of the year for his students. These were done for his classroom.

These are the princesses I did for my daughter. They're fun to work with. The colors are bright and the images are easy to recognize.

Sooo...this is Anakin Skywalker. I'm a huge Star Wars™ geek and their fan page won't get back to me, so it's here. I love the story, the play on good vs. evil. Great stuff for artists!

This is the first image in a series of bible stories. This was done for a private customer in North Carolina, who wanted something fun for a child. She felt that religious art was always very somber, and that was a good way to turn children off from religion. So this is my answer to that...fun, childlike renderings of three known bible stories.

This was a logo design for a volunteer fire house. They wanted something to put on t-shirts and documents, etc. Since this is a small town fire department, the search and rescue team as well as EMT's are represented too.

I like to do a lot of things with paint, my favorite is to section out colors so that the image appears to be broken down. This is an example of that.

This was poster I did for Holocaust Memorial Day, about 9 years ago. It stood in the entry way of a local business for 6 days. I think this is one of those pieces that says all it needs to without my help.

This was a Halloween invite for the company I worked at, to invite my fellow coworkers to our annual Halloween brunch. My wedding Anniversary is October 31, so Halloween is great subject for me.

This is a watercolor image done on an 8" x 8" piece of paper. It was my answer to the idea that Christians have lost sight of the real meaning of Christmas. I disagreed, and what I came up with satisfied that argument.

This is one of three in a series of "Fire Dogs". They were done for a person and not a business. They were a present to her grandson in New York, honoring his father the fire fighter.

This is from a local theater group's presentation of "The Odd Couple". They wanted to capture the theme from the Broadway production where the actor's appeared as caricatures of themselves.

As a breast cancer survivor, I always feel this image needs no introduction.

About Me:
My name is Anna and I am an Illustrator. I graduated from college in 2001 and since then I have done a little of everything. I designed cross stitch and needlepoint for a while, I have illustrated books, worked for NASA on some small art projects...you name it. My art can sometimes be dark, but always has that childlike edge to soften it. I do a lot with mixing medias; combining the hand drawn with the computer. I think it just makes it more interesting.
