Biography

 

           Anne, a signature member in the Philadelphia Watercolor Society and the Pennsylvania Watercolor Society, has had a distinguished career as an accomplished artist. Her award winning paintings have been selected for many professionally juried shows, as well as invitational shows throughout the area. Though she most often paints local themes and commissioned pieces, she has traveled and painted various subjects in Maine, Nova Scotia, Italy, Portugal, Greece, and Spain.

            Raised in Chester County, Pennsylvania, Anne received her Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree at Villanova University/ Rosemont College. She later studied textile design at Philadelphia College of Textiles and Sciences (since renamed Philadelphia University). Anne then worked in New York City as a textile designer and fabric stylist. 

            After more than a decade of professional textile design, she again turned her talents to her love of the Fine Arts and watercolor painting. Attending numerous workshops and spending many hours painting with other well-known local artists provided her with the time to develop her own unique style. Her extraordinary knowledge of color acquired during her years of textile design is clearly seen in her fresh, loosely rendered and colorful paintings. Her personal style evidences both her love of painting and her subjects. She has exhibited her paintings at the annual Notre Dame Art Show, Yellowsprings Art Show, Lansdale Festival of the Arts, among other places. She currently is a watercolor instructor at the Greater Norristown Art League.
