Anna Cruz is an illustrator working at the crossroads of design, art, and publishing.
Anna is a freelance illustrator and brand designer who loves to collaborate with brands that offer unique perspectives and new ways of thinking. Her favorite thing about her job is the collaborative process of iterating and learning from each other, which in turn transforms the world we live in, slowly but surely.
In 2016, she started a small publishing press called Lemon Press with her husband, Adam Lavigne. Together, they exhibit paintings, paint murals, and run zine and drawing workshops.
In her free time, she likes to take neighborhood walks, nature hikes, take care of her plants, and is currently learning to cook her favorite Filipino dishes from childhood.

"Reminiscent of a universal pictorial translator card, [Anna's images] are distilled to an essence with playful detail and flights of fancy, transporting viewers to a feeling or a memory."
JESSICA PIRANI, ARTBORNE MAGAZINE
"Cruz’s work is detailed, blending colors into nebulous landscapes, such as a desert defined by a sunset and a couple cacti. Her human figures seem to be emotional representations of the world she’s depicting."
