About Annarose Smith

Hello, I'm a 27 year old half-Indian, half-British illustrator living in Cardiff. My work explores both the more serious and the silly aspects of my personality - sometimes exploring my lived experiences of depression and anxiety but at other times making weird animal puns.

My work mostly revolves around portraits, animals and plants with a big focus on texture, pattern, hand-lettering and pastel/jewel colours. I work in a combination of digital media, gouache, watercolour, ink and pencil.


Somewhat interesting facts about me: I have a 2:1 in BSc Psychology from Cardiff University, I have titanium rods down the length of my spine, and my maternal grandparents were from the same village as Gandhi.
