I’m Anna Derr, and I’m a graphic designer and illustrator in Aiken, South Carolina. I have a Master of Arts in Arts Administration from the Savannah College of Art & Design and a Bachelor of Arts in Music from the University of South Carolina.
Tea Olive started as an Etsy shop (check it out here), where I offer invitations and printables for birthday parties, baby showers, and other special life events. I also work at my home church and love doing design work in my home town.
When I’m not designing, I’m spending time with my family: my incredible husband Zach, my two young and lively sons, and my sweet pup. We love music, Disney, spending time outdoors, and traveling.
Why Tea Olive? Have you ever experienced a tea olive? They’re hardy shrubs with the tiniest little buds, but when they bloom they are oh-so-delightfully fragrant and amazing. Simple, resilient, sweet, and pure. I just love it!
