Author and illustrator Anna Myers Sabatini lives in New York City. She is part of a very artistically-inclined family. At age 14 she decided that illustrating books was the thing she most wanted to do, and has worked toward that goal ever since. In 2005 she finished her Bachelor of Arts in Drawing, Painting and Printmaking at Bard College at Simon’s Rock, then went on to receive her Master of Fine Arts in Illustration at Western Connecticut State University. Anna strongly believes in taking a multicultural approach with her work, finding unity in diversity, and conveying acceptance of cultural differences as a way to finding peace on an individual and global scale.
Anna's other field of specialty is graphic design, both print and digital, for small businesses and non-profit organizations. She uses her artistic training as a starting point for all of her projects. As with her illustrations, she believes graphic design must convey a story through the marriage of images and text. Since August 2008, Anna has served as Graphic Designer for the Berkshire Publishing Group.
Some of her design projects have included:
Illustration and Graphic Design for movies and animation:
