Surface Design

In addition to her work as a fine artist, Annie Moran has a passion for creating nature-inspired surface pattern and textile designs, which are available for licensed use in product categories such as stationery, apparel, and home decor.

Moran’s penchant for recreating flora and fauna stems from her deep connection to her Louisiana roots and the Gulf Coast. Moran’s designs are universally appealing yet draw on her southern background to create playfully elegant and often whimsical designs.

Annie specializes in delicately rendered watercolor illustrations in soft palettes with a style that is a blend of classic and contemporary. Through vignettes and repeat patterns of birds, flowers, aquatic life and other flora and fauna, her work is an examination and celebration of nature. A large portion of Annie's collection pays homage to the landscape of the Gulf South— her greatest inspiration. "I adore the beauty and variety of nature all over the planet, but there's something particularly mysterious and enchanting about the swamps, rivers, etc… of my native surroundings,” Moran explains.

Annie brings 14 years of experience as a working artist to her craft. Her career thrived in New York City where she established a freelance design client roster including brands such as Kate Spade, Henri Bendel, Coach and Ugg. Moran lives in New Orleans and is constantly inspired by the rich cultural tapestry and history of the city and the beauty of the Gulf Coast region.
