Annie Grotophorst

I majored in Art History and minored in Museum Studies at the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, Virginia. I studied modern architecture, honed my painting and drawing skills, accidentally took a class about farm equipment, and ate lots of Carl's Ice Cream.

Now I'm a designer and illustrator based in Charleston, SC, currently working at Cobble Hill making fun stuff for neat people. I also do freelance work, where I make neat stuff for fun people.
