A fanciful and colorful vision of the North Georgia hills.  It is interpreted in acrylic paint applied with a creative array of unconventional tools including combs, rubber ribs, serrated trowels, etc.  Anything to give great texture and energy.

Getting to Know Anne

Anne’s body of work is marked by her passion for artistic experimentation. She enjoys using offbeat tools to create texture in her work, and builds layer upon layer of paint until she achieves an interesting effect. Anne’s focus on texture may be the result of her background in ceramics. “I married a handsome potter and together we created pottery that sold to galleries and craft shops across the country,” she says. Ultimately the couple opened their own gallery, and, lacking the time necessary to make her ceramics, Anne turned to the slightly less labor-intensive medium of painting. “We have since retired from the day-to-day running of the gallery and I paint every day.”
