"The Big Beginning"
Annamarie Hope is an American illustrator and natural dyer, born out of the forests of Vermont, taught in New York City and now residing in Melbourne, Australia. After graduating from Parsons the New School for Design, studying primarily studying science at Eugene Lang + illustration at Parsons, her passions have guided her to the northern hill tribes of Thailand, where she calls a tiny cloud-encased mountain her space of practice. Annamarie's cross disciplinary passions inform her designs with a wide spread of tactics; from naturally dyeing textiles with insects and minerals, to plexi-glass dyeing & scientific infographics. Her vision is to share the spirit of the craft through the evidence of the hand of the maker.
