Thank you for visiting my website! I'm an illustrator, surface pattern designer and graphic artist. I recently moved to Denver, CO with my husband and our spoiled senior dog, Mr. B. I grew up in St. Louis, MO and have been drawing and creating things for as long as I can remember. I was lucky enough to grow up with a father who is an Illustrator and art has always been a major part of my life.
I am an in-house graphic artist for Betallic - a balloon company in St. Louis. My days are spent researching trends and developing new balloon shapes and designs for various holidays, occasions and party decorations. Betallic balloons are sold all over the world so you may see my designs floating in your local grocery store or party decor shop! Betallic also has a box manufacturing division, Boxco, for which I create pattern designs and other art for gift boxes.
I have a graphic design education from Southeast Missouri State University and over the past few years I have taken several online courses to develop my illustration and design skills from Lilla Rogers, Lauren Hom, Shannon McNab and Victoria Johnson. I also am fully addicted to Skillshare!
In 2020 I started my own greeting card business, Fox Card Co. What started as a quest to use my art to spread some love during my quarantined summer of 2020 has blossomed into a booming business! Fox Card Co is now sold in 15 retail stores in the US and Canada and has made over 3000 sales on Etsy. I have also illustrated 2 children's books that can be found on amazon using the links HERE and HERE!
I adore hiking, sunshine, yoga, treasure hunting at thrift stores, going to concerts, and traveling. I love reading memoirs of people that I find fascinating and last year I started taking improv classes because comedy has always been a love of mine.
A few of my favorite people that inspire me creatively are Maria Bamford, Lisa Congdon, Jim Henson, Roz Chast, Amy Sedaris, and Helen Dardik.
Still reading? Oh good I haven't lost you yet! Since you're still interested, here is a short story regarding how my website got its' name:
When I was three I was staring out the window when suddenly a squirrel quickly sprinted past. I shouted with gusto, "OH! Must be A FOX!". My parents have always loved that little story. Fast forward 27 years later, and I married the love of my life - a man named Jim FOX. My name is now "Anna Fox or..... A. Fox". And to this day, I'm still fascinated by squirrels. So when it came to picking a name for my website, "Must Be A Fox" just seemed like the perfect choice.
