Anna has a BFA from the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design in Painting & Drawing. After school, she traveled around the country, eventually finding herself back in the Midwest. In Chicago, Anna began working towards a culinary career. She has worked in kitchens including Le Bec Fin (Philadelphia), Blackbird (Chicago), Everest (Chicago), consulted for Boltwood (Evanston), and was most recently the Pastry Chef of the Publican and Publican Quality Meats (Chicago). Anna and her husband, David, are currently working on their own restaurant which is set to open in Chicago in Fall of 2016. Meanwhile, Anna is also producing several commissioned projects and illustrations, including a cookbook to be printed in 2017.
1. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN ORIGINAL AND A PRINT? THE ORIGINAL IS THE ARTWORK CREATED BY THE ARTIST. THE PRINT IS A COPY OF THE ARTWORK PRINTED ON HIGH QUALITY PAPER.
2. HOW DOES THE WORK SHIP? EACH PIECE WILL SHIP IN PACKAGING APPROPRIATE FOR IT'S SIZE AND WEIGHT. A PIECE OF PAPER WILL SHIP IN A FLAT, REINFORCED ENVELOPE. A LARGER WORK MIGHT COME ROLLED IN A TUBE.
3. WHERE DO YOU SHIP? CURRENTLY, WE SHIP TO THE UNITED STATES AND CANADA.
4. DO YOU MAKE COMMISSIONED WORKS? YES! As long as the desired artwork can be crafted well by the artist
Everything begins with a friendly and open conversation. You are under no obligation to buy anything or sign anything during an initial conversation. The purpose is to discuss our expectations and hopefully agree to move forward with a commissioned artwork.
Once we agree on a general size and theme, we can begin to outline the price and a timeframe for work to be completed. I will customize an artist contract specifically for your project, which will require a signature and deposit before I begin any design work.
How long does it take? The time it takes to complete a composition varies depending on the size and complexity of the design. For commissioned drawings, it can take as little as two weeks to a month. Paintings require more time
Can you create a design based on a photo? Yes! As long as it is not a picture based on a copyrighted photo, licensed design or another artist’s work (unless the copyright holder provides written permission)
