About the Artist
As a child, Delaware native A. Mosiej [“mo-jhay”] devoted a great deal of time to drawing. She cannot recall when she first began to identify as an artist – she always knew it was her destiny. Early on, several mentors recognized her talent and encouraged her to pursue it. She honed her craft and developed her unique style taking courses including illustration and graphic design during four years as a student at Philadelphia’s Hussian School of Art.
After graduating, she apprenticed for a time with the late Soterios Anton “Buddy” Pappas, an artist who went on to pursue fame and fortune in Las Vegas as a wrestler and later as a portrait and poster artist. Mosiej then focused on building an independent, freelance business and began to acquire her own clientele. She soon established a reputation for talented sign painting, logo and ad creation, and t-shirt design. Her long list of varied clients (below) illustrates the breadth of her successful career.
Mosiej’s most recent work reflects her distinctive light-hearted style, which adorns a delightful collection of engaging note cards. As always, her illustrations pop with vibrant color and captivate with quirky whimsy. She shares her Sussex County studio with her clan of rescue pets, well-loved dogs, cats, and parrot who often find their way onto her vivid creations.
