Annette studied art at LSU, Louisiana; The Otis College of Art, LA, California, and in Rome, Italy. She was able to paint the occasional commission while working in Newspaper Publishing, but after 30 years needed a change. Family and a need to settle brought her to her present place where she now has the pleasure to draw and paint full-time. She’s a member and marketing chair of The West Main Artists Co-op in Spartanburg,SC and Tryon Painters and Sculptors in Tryon, NC. She has had two successful shows in the Artists Guild Gallery and the Guild’s Annual Juried Show. In addition, she has been accepted into several exhibitions including the following:
5” x 5” Small Works Show, Target Gallery, Torpedo Factory Art Center, Alexandria, VA
Upstate Book Project, Hub-Bub, Spartanburg, SC
Carolina’s Got Art, Charlotte, NC
Upstairs Artspace, Tryon, NC
She works in acrylic and oils, pen and ink, and pencil. Current projects involve the use of oils, acrylic inks and paint, watercolor, and liquid graphite while using scratchboard techniques. Her subjects are distorted figures based on narratives built around family history and are meant to display the range of human emotions that connect us all.
