Annette Kraus, was raised in the midwest, the youngest of 6 kids. As far back she was often drawing and creating, being aware of she desired to be a designer & illustrator when she spent her childhood years. The few days after graduating college, she packed her car and shifted to New York to begin her career performing at numerous major metro newspapers. She mastered her abilities on the editorial side of illustration and page design.

Immediately after a ten-year stretch in New York, her husband and she migrated to wonderful Seattle, Washington which has been her home ever since. She persisted as a staff illustrator and designer at local area newspapers, but after the birth of her first child, she left the newspaper business and went the life of freelance and contract work. She spent over 12 years contracting for Microsoft both on campus and off, having a great knowledge on multiple fields, from an art director at MSN to a team designer for Microsoft.com. She has won a number of prizes for my work, both locally and internationally.
