Having loved fantasy art since a very young age, Australian artist Annie has been working hard to bring her fictional worlds to life. “I enjoy creating illustrations that express story, action and emotion,” the self-taught artist reveals. This can be seen in her work, which can trace its influences back to manga and anime, as well as the work of the Impressionists.
Even though she’s just started out as a freelance illustrator, Annie already has her sights set high. “I plan to continue my pursuits in fantasy illustration and create my own picture books,” she says.
“The adventurous girl travels with her dragons and companion bird through a fantasy landscape. The girl loves music and brings it to the places they visit, by the shiny musical notes that travel with them.” flight
“An action scene from my story The Lost Note, showing the characters fighting with a monster. The moonlight gives the scene a mystical and soft feel, despite the fighting. The man is stepping over the monsters, showing that he has power over them and is winning the battle.” Moonlight
“This is a peaceful scene from the story showing two characters resting in a rose garden. The girl considers the knight as a protector, and the open wings of the bird on his shoulder makes him look like an angel to her. I put a lot of effort into creating the texture in this image.” Angels
“Music is a good way to communicate and experience different cultures. This picture shows a girl on a trip playing a musical instrument, and bringing her music and stories to share with the people she meets. Although this is one of my older work and has a fair few mistakes, it’s still a favourite of mine.” Musical Journey 1
