Anja Kroencke was born in Austria. Since moving to New York in 1994, she has enjoyed working as a full-time illustrator, finding inspiration for her work in ‘The Big Apple’. Her elongated silhouette style figures and clever colour combinations gave her a lot of recognition in the late 90s, inspiring many other fashion illustrators along the way. Anja has collected numerous awards from The Society of Illustrators, The Art Directors Club New York and many more. Clients include British Airways, Estee Lauder, Givenchy, Harvey Nichols, Mattel and Seiko.
