My Name – Vanessa Raidy

My real life job title is – Illustrator | Creator of Joy

In my past life I… Was illustrating for a variety of markets (education, embroidery, seasonal products), but I also used to do invoicing, which I kind of loved.

My favorite AFB project is… Anything that calls for bright, fun & joyful!

My dream project would be… Children’s textiles & home decor

My Superpower is… Deal finder — coupons, rewards, double cash back — yes, please!

A secret skill I have is… I’m left-handed, but create most of my designs using my right hand.

The best thing about AFB is… Having the opportunity to create joyful designs within a supportive team alongside remarkably talented artists.
