In college Anne majored in art history and studied painting under Melvin Zabarsky. Sidelined by raising children and a career as lawyer, she has returned to painting in more recent years. Anne paints in watercolor, sometimes enhanced with pastels and/or ink. She has exhibited at the Lost River Winery in Winthrop, the Confluence Gallery in Twisp, and the Giddyup Gallery in Okanogan.
Anne’s subject matter is typically animals, landscapes, or flowers of the Methow Valley. Range cattle, horses, pigs, chickens, goats, sheep, and dogs grace small raised panels, often whimsically, always colorfully. Landscapes and flowers reflect this picturesque area. These make fitting, inexpensive mementos of a visit to the Methow or meaningful gifts.
Anne works at a studio on her property in Winthrop, where she lives with her husband, Steve, and two border collies. When she’s not painting, she’s gardening or recreating, doing chores when absolutely necessary.
Anne’s “mini panels” can be found at Methow Valley Goods on the TwispWorks campus Twispworks, at the Confluence Gallery, and at the Giddyup Gallery in Okanogan.
