Hi, I’m Your Instructor, Annie Margarita
Growing up in California and Arizona, Annie Margarita is a fourth generation interior designer and decorative painter. Afraid of the challenges of being a fine artist, Annie joined the Marines and later realized that art was her true calling. After moving to Orlando, she became a scenic artist for Seaworld, then moving on to Disney to help build the Animal Kingdom as a painter and sculptor creating the habitats. Her work ethic and talent pushed her to leadership positions, and she went on to lead crews for Universal Studios and many zoos and aquariums throughout the US and Europe. She then started a mural and decorative paint company in Arizona, and earned a degree in Interior Design while focused on walls and colorization. She recently completed her Bachelor of Science in Art and Technology, with majors in Film and Animation from the University of Oregon. This knowledge in digital mediums and art allows her to create extraordinary online lessons for her students.
