Anne Kotecha is a London-born illustrator based in Bristol. She uses pencil, gouache, ink, printmaking and digital techniques to create narratives with bold colour and texture.
Anne is inspired by observational drawing, mid-century modern graphic design, alternative music and the sometimes uncomfortable but always interesting places where cultures meet. Anne’s picture book and graphic novel work communicates hidden subtleties and difficult themes with sensitivity and humour.
David McKee, Jon Klassen, Abner Graboff and Beatrice Alemagna are some of her inspirations. When not sketching, Anne can be found writing songs, playing guitar with her noise band, or programming games for children.
