Annelise Capossela is an award-winning illustrator living and working in New York City. She received her BFA from Savannah College of Art and Design and her MFA from School of Visual Arts. Annelise has created images and motion work for editorial, books, comics, advertising, surface design, and more. With her own work, and in teaching, Annelise's focus is on art with purpose, story, and heart. Originally from Vermont, whenever Annelise isn't drawing, she's probably ditching the city for the mountains.

Annelise teaches and lectures whenever she can. She is currently teaching a remote Continuing Education class in Motion Illustration at MCAD, and recently published a Flip Book GIF demo for Society of Illustrators.
