Anna Lissiman's Profile

About

I Love the Ocean. My process usually begins with snorkeling with underwater digital cameras and converting these by hand to my drawing board. Art has played a role in my life since I was a very little girl. My favourite time is when the sun is about to set and the shadows get especially long. Then the world looks like a drawing, itself. My time is spent Surfing, sometimes thinking about the Age of Illustration. I've been living in New Zealand and recently made a home in Hawai'i. Islands such as Fiji, Tonga, Samoa, Niue, Vanuatu, New Caledonia, French Polynesia, Aotearoa and the Hawai'ian Island Chain make up greater Polynesia.
I really try to tell a story with my artwork so that childrens' clothing is not whimsical, but more like old dictionary illustrations.
