Where I learned about graphics: a workshop with Anne Jess and Claire Bronson at Seattle University, Fundamentals of Interactive Graphics with Christina Merkley in Victoria, B.C. , private training with Christine Valenza in San Francisco, CA, basic drawing classes at Pratt Fine Arts Center.


Anna has a keen ear for the conversations going on in the room. She tunes in to the flow of language and energy, and connects this flow to the questions being discussed by the group as well as to new questions that always emerge during meaningful conversations.

She prepares well, and is open to coordinating closely with the host of the gathering. Her drawings are beautiful and useful, with precise wording, clear script, and apt images. Her final products – the original drawing and a professional photograph – are excellent.

Anna was the answer. I needed a new way to bring viewers to my website. Not only was Anna's Graphic Recording talent amazing, but also her fresh new ideas on how to script a story, adding great visual interest. I am totally satisfied with the results of the "Home Search" tutorial video we made. It sets me apart in a very crowded field of Real Estate Brokers. Working with Anna was not only a Graphic Recording learning experience but a lot of fun for me in developing a very successful marketing tool.

Anna created colorful large-scale visual charts, using words and pictures that made our keynote talk more engaging, memorable and effective. Anna does a wonderful job of capturing people's ideas and expressions as they are being spoken in the moment and helps promote learning, participation and creativity. Easy going and flexible Anna was able to adapt to any and all last minute program changes. I look forward to working with her again in the future.
