Annie Stegg has been painting whimsical illustrations from early childhood, though her professional career did not start until 2004 when she graduated with a bachelor’s degree in art. Her works encompass a wide variety of mediums, including both two and three dimensional forms. Specializing in character design and development, her goal is to create unique images that tell a story.
Her illustrations have been featured in various game and publishing clients including Ballistic Publishing, Apple, Android, Hi-Rez Studios, Tiki Games, Addicting Games, and SPIL Games. In addition to these commissioned projects, she spends most of her time creating her own personal body of work which is inspired from folklore, mythology, and nature. Her signature works include fanciful depictions of women and animals. Annie strives to create images that will evoke emotion and imagination in the viewer. She believes that in order to gain a better understanding of oneself, it is important to be open to others’ perceptions. Art is just another way to express an emotion or ideal; a visual method of communication that depicts things that words cannot express and connects people through insight.
Most of Annie’s work is done in acrylics, but she also works in oils, color pencils, and watercolor. She currently resides in Northern Georgia.
