Anna Ferrara

I have been drawing ever since I could hold something that made marks, chalk, pencil, permanent marker (much to my mother's chagrin). I have worked as an art instructor at summer camps and an art instructor's assistant in an academic summer program at Bullis School in Potomac, MD. I am currently considering going back for a Master's Degree in Illustration or a Master's Degree in Art Education. I have a love for children and worked in daycare with infants after college to pay bills. I have a lovely, large family and a snuggily Boykin Spaniel! I also adore history and learning new things. One of my favorite types of outings are to historical homes, which we have in abundance in Virginia. Faith goes into every stroke of my pen, pencil and stylus and to God goes the glory for who I am and what I create. It would be an honor to assist you, the reader, with drawing out your ideas into tangible images.

My rates depend on the amount of compositions needed and the complexity, but normally start at $35 an hour.

I look forward to hearing from you!
