Who Is Anne Jantz?

        I am  an Artist, a  Storyteller,  a Teacher,

      a Traveler, and a Computer Geek

      I've been an artist all my life, and I also spent 25 years doing Computer Assisted Design for architects. Engineering and Technology have been very good to my husband Bill and I, allowing us to live in 7 countries and 7 states. Bill is also a CAD Designer, with many years experience in Automotive Design all over the World.

        Back in 2015 I launched off into another new venture, writing and illustrating my first children's book, "Olivia Ocelot Comes to the Rescue: Adventures in the Rainforest". I used both traditional painting and Corel Draw software to create it. It is available now in paperback form at my booth in Eastern Market's Sunday Market  and from my store on Etsy.com in a hand autographed and individually personalized edition. It is also on Amazon.com. The setting for the story is Costa Rica. Now, I am hard at work on the sequel which takes place in the Arizona desert. The third one will be set in Michigan, and it is bubbling up in my mind all the time now. I have to finish #2 first!!!
        I've been an avid world traveler, and a xenophile, passionate about learning new things, and also about sharing these things with others. I'm learning all about fabric design and posting my designs on Spoonflower.com a print on demand company (POD) for fabric, wallpaper and wrapping paper.  I am also a maker and a member at Techshop where I'm learning how to model my animal characters with 3D Printing.  

             My Next Big Thing is learning animation so I can create animated versions of my children's books.

​​Welcome To My Website!!!

You and Your Children Will Love Olivia Ocelot.

Adventurous, funny, exciting, educational, and filled with Nature’s wonders, my first children's book, “Olivia Ocelot Comes to the Rescue” captures the enchantment of the Rainforest, and the color-filled tropical beauty of Costa Rica. Olivia Ocelot’s adventures emphasize the power of her community, and her story celebrates the friendships between some very fascinating and unique animals.
