“Eric Rewitzer and Annie Galvin are printmakers and painters, husband and wife, and founders of 3 Fish Studios.
Annie (1966) was born and raised in Ireland. She worked as an illustrator in a Dublin agency before moving to San Francisco in 1989, two weeks before the earthquake. Annie is inspired by San Francisco, Vogue magazine, comic books, Josef Frank textile designs, gardens, Mexican wrestlers, the short stories of Haruki Murakami, and her own dreams and daydreams. She doodles constantly.
I like to create stories and depict the tension between what's happening now and what just happened - or is going to happen. A girl embracing a bear - what is their relationship? Is she in danger. Or brokenhearted? A woman reading a letter - What news does the letter carry? Does it change her life? I'm inspired by San Francisco with its millions of stories, comic-books, Josef Frank textile designs, Mexican wrestlers, doodles, the short stories of Haruki Murakami...and my own daydreams and flights of fancy.”
