Anne is an acrylic artist in Southern California. She grew up among the massive fir trees & lush fruit orchards of Oregon’s Willamette Valley. A formal education in Apparel Design led her to a long career as a technical designer in California’s garment industry. Always pursuing art & craft in one form or another, Anne has recently discovered a love of painting. Her inspiration comes most often from time spent at the ocean, in the mountains & on the road, trying to catch as many beautiful sunsets as possible. Her painting education has come from Irvine Fine Arts Center, Acrylic University by Jed Dorsey, with instruction and inspiration from Dianna Shyne, Farley Lewis, & numerous other inspiring artists.
