My name is Anne and I was born and raised in North Carolina. Ever since I was walking, I was drawing and I can't remember a life without creating. I have dabbled in all mediums of art but currently have been doing a lot of work with acrylic paintings. I consider my art to be abstracted realism, a look into how I see the world. The hues, colors and contours I see I want to share in my art. I have a B.A of Studio Art from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, but consider myself to be self taught. My career as an artist so far has been selling commissioned work to clients through the internet and through referrals. My natural talent for portraits are the best selling pieces but I want to take a venture past portraits. Today I live and work at home with my family in Wilmington, North Carolina with my husband, two beautiful girls and a grumpy dachshund.
