Anne attended College of Art in Hamburg, Germany (Fachhochschule fuer Gestaltung), from which she graduated in 1995 with a degree in illustration. Right after earning her degree she moved to Maui/Hawaii. For the past 20 years she has worked for advertising agencies, design studios and publishers, creating many book, packaging, editorial and point of purchase illustrations. Among her clients are: Penguin Random House, Ravensburger, Macy's, Clif, Celestial Seasonings, Heinemann, Oxford University Press, Holiday House, The Smithsonian, Capstone, Schmidt Games. Her range of style can be quite wide, from a straight forward realistic, yet charming feel, to a more painterly, sometimes surrealistic impressionistic approach.
