Hello!

Ann Macarayan (Ann Ryan, for short!) is an illustrator and designer based in Minneapolis, MN.  Originally from Hawaii, they decided to leave perpetual 80 degree weather to attend the Minneapolis College of Art and Design.  Having worked in a range of illustration and design, their work can be minimal and clean or detailed and lush, but always refreshing in appealing texture and composition.  Their style is a great example of organic shapes living in a digital world, and is always inspired by bright colors, patterns, and whatever they think is cool in the moment.

They have been recognized by both the Society of Illustrators LA and the Society of Illustrators NY.  Currently, they work at Target Headquarters designing fun prints and graphics for the Cat + Jack brand.

They have a special love for tiny plants, collecting stickers, and matcha flavored anything.
