Here's What Students Are Saying

"I have been a designer for years, but I can always pick up new nuggets of information. I consider myself a lifelong learner. Anne’s enthusiasm and passion is contagious. I am excited to get help in my creative business and really finding and honing my style."

Barbara Abbatiello
Surface Pattern Designer

"I’m impressed with Anne’s availability! I love the step by step. I struggle to get computer programs to do what they are supposed to do. I was able to follow the steps and create a repeating pattern. It's exciting to have a win!"

Lisa Gunnoe
Beginning Student

"Anne is an excellent teacher. She is very knowledgeable and covers every aspect of the process, from inspiration to completing your first repeating pattern. Anne is great at breaking Adobe Illustrator down into bite size pieces. And all the while, her passion for surface pattern design shines through. If you aren’t hooked now, you definitely will be after taking her class!"
