Anne is a snowbird. She has been traveling between Fairbanks, Alaska and Bent, New Mexico
for the last fifteen years. She loves to travel and explore. Exploring is a term she uses to
describe her travels, her backpacking trips, her painting outings or just going for a short walk
with her grandchildren to observe their surroundings. Exploring the outdoors evokes a sense of
serenity, peace and quiet. Anne’s aspiration is to reflect these feelings into her paintings, which
are mostly landscapes.
Anne’s medium of choice is oils but also paints with watercolor and gauche. She belongs to
several local (Alaska and New Mexico) and national art organizations including Oil Painters of
America, Plein Air Painter of New Mexico, Plein Air Painter of Colorado, Otero Art Inc, and the
Fairbanks Watercolor Society. Her work has been accepted into several nationally juried shows
and earned an Honorable Mention in the 64th Parallel Contemporary Fine Art Exhibition for her
painting “Creamers’ Field” in 2007.
She has an Associate of Arts Degree from Alpena Community College, Alpena, Michigan; a
Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science from the University of Montana, Missoula, Montana;
and a Bachelor of Fine Art from the University of Alaska Fairbanks, Fairbanks, Alaska.
She believes that there is beauty all around us. Her wish is to bring that beauty
into other’s homes through her paintings. You can find more of Anne’s art work at
