Annie Shrive is an illustrator and designer based near Stamford, Lincolnshire. She uses a range of techniques from linocut print to digital illustration and her work is inspired by wildlife and botanical themes.
With a background in book and magazine publishing in editorial design, she enjoys working on a wide variety of commissions ranging from editorial illustration, publishing design projects through to packaging and surface design. Alongside this Annie prints her own range of linocut prints and textiles.
Lincolnshire has been home for two years where she designs, illustrates and prints in a studio overlooking the garden. The creative process starts with discussing an idea, observation and photography, drawing and printing with final artwork worked on digitally. Poetry and text, plantlife and wildlife around her local countryside all play an important part in visual inspiration.
