“The creative process is a process of surrender, not control… Mystery is at the heart of creativity. That, and surprise.” -Julia Cameron

Anne’s artistic philosophy is all about the process. Art is a journey of many steps that can teach the creator many different things along the way. While being predominately a painter, Anne began collaging in 2015 when she was commissioned to create a picture for a nursery and decided to go in a new direction.

Originally from Pennsylvania, Anne moved to Virginia to teach art to elementary students.  She has been teaching for over 20 years and enjoys how her students continually astound her with their amazing artwork. In turn, Anne’s students are impressed that she is a practicing artist even though sometimes they are skeptical that she really knows what she’s talking about.
