Shanna Anderson

freelance artist

Portland, OR, USA
I draw, illustrate, paint and color. My degree is in sequential art (storytelling with words and pictures) and I love exploring new ways to use my skills. I enjoy illustrating for picture books, posters, education material, etc. and I make custom cards by commission. I do graphic design and branding on a freelance basis. I am constantly trying my hand at new techniques, styles, or applications. I even dabble in cake decorating.
