Audrey De La Cruz
Owner, Artist, Illustrator
Hello! My name is Audrey De La Cruz, and I am the artist and illustrator behind Annotated Audrey Art. Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, I moved to Tucson, Arizona in 2016 to pursue a full-time career as an artist. In my first year living in Tucson, I fell in love with its lush desert landscapes, strange creatures, and unique plant life. Unsurprisingly, my new surroundings quickly made their way into my art. Common themes in my work include desert scenes and cactus, as well as, female characters surrounded by desert flora. My trademark style combines rich colors, black outlines and bold patterns, which I often create using a variety of mediums and techniques ranging from ink and colored pencil to watercolor and acrylic paint. I strive to make art that people of all ages can enjoy because I firmly believe that art should be accessible and that anyone can be artistic as long as they find their creative spark.
Graphic Designer, Creative Services Lead
My name is Larry, I am the “Annotated” in Annotated Audrey. I was also born and raised in the Los Angeles area, but I went to school at The University of Arizona. While I was in school, I was able to experience the rich arts community of Tucson, AZ. This experience is what put Tucson on our radar as a place to live and pursue this new lifestyle. I use my graphic design skills to take Audrey’s art and turn it into all the different products that we sell. This includes adding the cute words and phrases that make everything, well, Annotated. I’m most comfortable working behind a computer, so my original art is in the form of vector graphics. Usually, these designs end up accompanied by a silly joke on a pin-back button. If you visit our booth at an event, I will typically be standing behind the table to greet you with a smile. I’d love to see you there!
