This joyful mixed media piece by illustrator Annie Fix incorporates her passion for sewing and design. With a life-long calling to be an artist, Annie started very young finding drawings her older sister, Lorraine Rocha, had done and tried to learn by copying them. Though discouraged to pursue art by her parents, Annie eventually graduated from San Jose State University with a BFA in Illustration and Animation; whereupon she interned at Slave Labor Graphics, was an Art Assistant in Industrial Light and Magic's art department, and then moved on to freelance as a Concept Artist for the likes of Ubisoft, Stormfront Studios, and presently for 2K Games. Having just recently finished working on characters for Bioshock 2 and Annie is now onto the next 2K project. A very full-time mother to a busy 3-year-old boy, 8-month-old girl, and 8-year-old stepson, Annie also somehow finds time to develop her own art AND contribute to benefits and art auctions such as ours!
