About The Artist

Artist Statement

The ephemeral nature of shifting light, perspectives, and the emotional landscape are what I am drawn to. My atmospheric, non-representational paintings suggest an unveiling of secrets with soft blended backgrounds paired with bold sparks of color. I strive to create ethereal paintings that present a contemplative state where answers begin to reveal themselves in the chaos of creation.

Biography

Anne received her Bachelor of Arts in Graphic Design from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo after which she built a long and successful career as a brand developer and packaging designer in the wine and spirits industry. Following her career in the digital realm, Anne has turned to the analog and luscious expressiveness of oils on canvas with a passion. Anne’s childhood home in the rural hills of Palo Alto held a nearly limitless view across miles of rolling golden hills that formed her early love of the natural world and a feeling of boundlessness that finds its way into her work. Her studio in Larkspur (Marin County, California) looks out over the forested canyon where she lives with her family, these expansive vistas of living a life in coastal northern California has inspired her lifelong love of the majestic power of the natural world. As her full-time practice as an abstract fine artist takes flight, Anne brings all her formative experiences into play; the exactness and precision of a design profession, the observations of the forest and ocean vistas around her and her quest for reaching new planes of being.
