Hello! My name is Annabelle and I am the artist behind Graphics and Grain. I’m so glad you’ve come across my work and decided to check out my website and I’d love for you to get to know me better!
My work is heavily inspired by the outdoors and specifically by the mountains – two areas where I find so much joy and comfort. You’ll see lots of organic color palettes paired with natural imagery in my work! I also like to illustrate positive phrases and affirmations as a way to spread the same joy and comfort I get from nature with those who see my work.
I am 24 years old and have been traveling nearly full-time since becoming a full-time artist! When I’m not creating art, I love to read and can spend hours in the sun getting acquainted with new characters. I love taking pictures, both on my phone and on a rotation of point-and-shoot film cameras. I’ve recently rediscovered my love for movement and am starting to find a lot of excitement in running and practicing yoga, and – silly as it sounds – playing ping pong. I love to travel, of course, and find so much joy in walking around a new city, taking in a new landscape, or just trying something new. I feel so fortunate that I’m able to create on the go and love finding new sources of inspiration and motivation to express myself and my creativity as I meander and find myself in new places.
I am originally from New York but spent the years before beginning to travel in New Orleans, Louisiana. New Orleans provided an endless source of artistic inspiration, and the time I spent there during the beginning of the pandemic allowed me a lot of creative freedom to experiment with various art forms and styles and develop the beginnings of Graphics and Grain.
Over the past three years as a full-time artist I’ve been able to work with wonderful people and brands to bring their creative visions to life. I've worked with incredible companies and organizations such as the Sierra Club, Anthropologie, Bed Threads, United by Blue, and Adobe –among others! I also create a hefty amount of personal work and share those pieces on Instagram as frequently as I’m able. Here you’ll find a selection of my personal designs offered as prints, t-shirts, tote bags and other items as a way to share my art in a more physical way with my community.
I hope you enjoy what you see and learned something new about me! If you’d like to connect further feel free to head over to my contact page or to send me a message on Instagram! I’m so grateful for your support!
