Hi there! I’m Anna!
I like to make art…oh! and these sugar-coated donut things.
Most of my art is made with a computer, a mouse, and a healthy love of Helvetica. But I also like to get my fingers messy dabbling with paper, paint brushes, ink, stamps, spatulas, cameras, or whatever else I can get my hands on.
I really like Diet Coke and long, rainy days. One time, I had this dream where it rained Diet Coke for 24 hours straight. It was good. I also have a thing for picture frames, Apple products, and adventures.
People make me happy. Really, genuinely happy. I mean that kind of happiness that makes me want to give everyone warm hugs. Taking care of people energizes me–even if it’s just helping with mundane tasks like changing diapers, fixing dinner, or organizing details, I love providing for & making people feel loved.
Here’s the most important thing you should know about me––at the end of the day, I am just a sinful person redeemed by Christ’s extravagant grace. I am so thankful for God’s grace and sovereignty. He fills my heart with joy, and I love looking for His hand at work during the sunny and stormy seasons of life.
Will There Still Be The Madill Creative Shop?
That’s a great question. Thanks for asking.
Someday . . . but not right now.
When 2014 started, I was preparing to launch the Madill Creative Shop as an outlet to share my artwork with you. This idea was born out of a love of typographic art and encouraging people. Because I am easily distracted, I love to surround myself with reminders that bring my attention back to Christ and His sovereign plan for my life. My personal reminders vary from scribbled Post-It notes on my iMac to prints I’ve designed & framed for my wall. I doubt I am the only one who finds myself needing to regularly refocus, so the vision for the Madill Creative Shop was to be an outlet to share some of this artwork with you.
However, this fall, God brought me an unexpected opportunity to work with Fishhook, a small business that partners with churches and faith-based organizations to help them gain momentum through clear, creative, and compelling communications strategies. I love Fishhook, and I am so excited to grow creatively as I work with them more extensively in church communications (which I love!) with churches from across Indiana & the nation.
What about Custom Projects?
Why, yes! I’d love to partner with you on a custom project! Just send me an email with the details!
