Anne Crosse

As an award winning designer and mixed media artist, my work continues with my enthusiasm for pattern with a vivid color palette. I utilize techniques that bridge traditional painting, printing, and collage, including digital technology.

In the early 90’s my interest in textiles led me to the Otis Art Institute's program for Surface Design in Los Angeles. After completion of this study, I worked in the Los Angeles Garment District designing for various textile manufacturers.  I created lines of brightly-colored paintings which were printed as textiles for many major swim wear and fashion companies.

The textile design work paved a way to the licensing departments for home decor companies. Clients such as Robert Kaufmann, T-Shirt manufacturers,  and major greeting card and stationery companies used my images for paper and textile products.  Over the years I have designed for many high profile clients such as Godiva Chocolatiers, Fex-Ex Kinkos, Time-Life Books, and Simon and Schuster Publishers.
