My name is Anna French and I am a designer living in the Fort Worth, Texas. I graduated from University of Texas in Arlington with a degree in Visual Communications.  I currently work as a graphic and web designer for an internet marketing firm.

I am a self-taught sewer/quilter.  I started learning via internet tutorials and YouTube videos in 2007 when I wanted to make my 6 month old son a quilt. I own and operate For The Love of Joy, a small business specializing in quilted child's name pillows, quilted nursing pillow covers, quilts, and quilt patterns.  My sewing work has been featured with Ann Kelle, Ashley Ann Photography, Gussy Sews, and Sew Mama Sew.

I am now focused on freelance design work which includes logos and branding, hand-lettering, illustrations, and pattern designs. 

I am inspired by the wide-open Texas country, quiet evenings, delicious food, working out and being active, listening to people's stories, pretty homes, lovely patterns, the color aqua, laughing with my best friends,  my beautiful family, and seeking Jesus in all things.
