Annie has had a long time interest in art, but was unable to pursue her interest for many years while she was raising her four children. Now, Annie has 12 grandchildren and one great grandchild.
Painting in acrylics, was Annie's initial venture into the art world, however, she discovered it was not really her favourite choice of medium. After a couple of years of working with acrylics, her daughter Kim who is also a painter urged her to try painting with oils. They painted together for a couple of years then Kim began studying with Donna Zhang, a recognized international artist. Kim encouraged Annie to join her and together painted under the direction of Donna. As her experience in oils grew, so did her interest in other subjects.
Today, Annie enjoys painting many different subjects and absolutely loves to spend lots of time with a brush in her hand.
