Deep Dive in Brand and UX Design
While living in Los Angeles, Alannah worked for a global tech company as their Creative Director–servicing some of the world's most influential luxury brands including Gucci, Saint Laurent, Valentino, Prada, and many others.

"Over the period of 20 years as a professional designer - nothing has compared to the experience of creating my own art"
Despite having a wonderful career as a brand designer and creative director, working with incredible brands–Alannah was drawn to explore her natural desire to draw and paint what was in her heart.
During the COVID lockdown period in 2020, an opportunity came for Alannah to pursue her fine art passion. Over an intense 12-month period she completed an online art program with Milan Art Institute which covered everything from Old Masters painting techniques to modern mixed media applications.
Alannah's artwork began to sell immediately while she was developing her style and artistic voice. This enabled her to turn her passion for Fine Art into her full-time art business, "Alannah Anderson Art".
