Anna Ellis is a thinker, creator, artist, designer, innovator and story teller. She was born and raised in western New York, the youngest of a large, loving family. She was always encouraged to try new things and go new places, but she always found herself drawn back to her first love: art. A true child at heart, working in the children's illustration and design fields seemed all too natural. She has often said her favorite things in this life are bright colors, laughter, dinosaurs, soft blankets, chocolate chip cookies, and of course her dog Lacey.
