My early years in art began working in silk screening. Years later, the love of nature and water led me to live on a barrier island where I became a successful wildlife and landscape photographer. Over time, my camera skill morphed into mixed media designs because I needed to see beyond what the camera recorded. Although a large portion of my work features traditional photographic methods, I crave the diversity and freedom of using multiple art forms which mirrors my life’s experiences with the creative process.
Mixed media is a melding of disciplines and has become the art discipline of choice for me. The basis of each piece begins with several of my photographs that I digitally overlay and compose. Then a high resolution reproduction is created that I manually embellish, which is where the real fun begins. Sometimes I draw or paint on the print, use sandpaper, spray with water, sprinkle with salt or pigments or add something totally out of the ordinary. The piece is re-photographed and the process repeated. This progression goes back and forth until I get exactly what my mind’s eye sees.
In addition to my original creations, I do at times purchase vintage collections which I remaster to Anne's and my vision. You will see some of this work as you browse this site.
Every item I sell is made in my studio so my customers can buy exactly the art I envisioned.
