As a graphic designer & illustrator Anna Stowe has almost a decade of experience working with various clients and companies on product, web, graphic design, surface design and illustration projects. She has collaborated with award-winning design studios, worked with international clients and helped new businesses get on their feet and running.
As a surface pattern designer Anna Stowe has discovered her zen – where illustration and design merge with colour and pattern. Using traditional and digital techniques, Anna creates unique, colourful patterns for use in textiles, home decor, giftware and paper goods.
As an artist Anna Stowe creates original works of art and also self-publishes prints and greeting cards which sell online and in retail stores. Her works are a mix of traditional and digital techniques, brightly coloured and often detailed with pattern. Inspired by her surroundings in eastern Canada, you will often see themes such as wildlife, forests, and landscape explored. Anna also has a fondness for folk art and vintage motorcycles.
She is grateful for having the opportunity to pursue her craft, as a visual artist, thanks to the loving support of her life partner Kevin Ramsay. He is a continual source of inspiration, encouragement, comic relief and camaraderie.
