Anne is a native Charlestonian. It was a magic time to be a child in Charleston. Galleries and frame shops were centralized in her neighborhood downtown and she had a childhood job cleaning glass with newspaper and soap for a local art framer. Art was everywhere. It was here that she determined, 'someday I am going to be a painter.' Anne's education and employment has been primarily business focused but she has had the opportunity to be involved in the creative process of everything from beach wear and costume design and construction, to home and institutional decor. She retired from her position at the College of Charleston in 2004 but continues to work in her husband's Mt. Pleasant law firm and eagerly looks forward to retirement and full-time painting. Several years living in the beautiful art and surf community of Laguna Beach, CA confirmed and reignited her desire to learn to paint but life intervened and she did not begin painting until 2010. Since then she has taken numerous classes and workshops with talented artists including Joyce Hall, Laurie Meyer, Hilarie Lambert, Tammy Papa, Angela Cunningham, Judy Crane and others. Her paintings are hanging in homes and businesses locally and throughout the U.S. An oil painting of old Christ Church, Mt. Pleasant is the DVD cover for a film partially funded by the SC Humanities Council and was used again for Note Cards to raise funds to build a church in Africa for a impoverished congregation. Another of her paintings was selected for use in the Town of Mount Pleasant's Planning Guide to represent Shem Creek. She exhibits with the Mount Pleasant Artists Guild and previously served on their Board. Anne works in oil and pastels, both studio and en plein air, and is pleased to meet interested parties by appointment.
