Annie spent her whole life in any field which involved art; whether teaching, taking art classes, or getting down and dirty with paint.
Teaching at the elementary level was her dream job, which she was lucky enough to do early in her career. Children love to "create" and enjoy expressing their thoughts as they draw or paint. They love the tactile feel of clay, the smell of crayons (you remember that, don't you?), and the finished product to share with others. Good memories.
Annie also loves looking at art. That means looking at everything around her. She also chose to look to the past by studying the works and thoughts of art throughout the ages. Annie decided to pursue a Masters's degree at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst.

Now in her retirement years, she draws and paints to her heart's delight. It's not a simple task, however. She notes this time in her life is daunting at her age. Yet, she creates art for pleasure. See: CREATE. Why?
Annie is proud to be an artisan in a local business, Heather Boutique, in Fredericksburg, Virginia. You can find many works from her drawing instructor portfolio.

"It's picking and choosing each day. It's experimenting with new techniques. It's navigating in a digital world that I didn't grow up in. It's exciting and challenging. Learn something new every day."
