Hi, I’m Irene.  I fell in love with Mary’s style after attending one of her sketch classes.  I guess you could say it was love at first sketch ;) After a few conversations it was clear that we both loved art, design, and creativity.

Mary brought me in to help with styling and coordinating creative projects.  Days around the office include creative brainstorming sessions, styling her amazing sketches, random bursts of laughter, figuring out stop motion animation, or what the next BIG thing will be.    

Outside of work, I love to spend time outdoors with my two girls and husband exploring the beautiful landscapes of California in our minivan. I'm an undercover boba addict who has no shame in taking my kids at the wee hours to get a fix.

Born with a crayon in her hand and a love of anything needing embellishment (walls included!), Annie's parents couldn't stop her from pursuing her artistic direction. Instead, they encouraged her with numerous art classes and lots of blank paper.

Annie studied fine art at the University of Illinois at Chicago where she graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. She went on to pursue her Masters Degree in Electronic Visualization and Virtual Reality but quickly realized that technology was not her passion. Instead she spent many years teaching hands on art to children of the Chicago public schools. She found her love of teaching and art to be perfectly aligned.
