About the Artist
Annie Rickard Straus is a commercial illustrator and fine art printmaker from and based in London. After completing her studies at Central St Martins and the Glasgow School of Art she began creating illustrations and lettering for a range of organisations and brands across the UK and beyond. She came back to printmaking in 2017 as an outlet for more abstract, colourful, and less commercial work. She loves screen-printing for the possibility of quantity and scale, and is obsessed with colour and how each layer sits together, each informing the last and next. At the heart of her work is energy, movement, tempo, balance and hidden hairy legs.
