About the Artist

Her memoir, Coming Alive will be published in 2021. Anne illustrated the book, Walking with Grief: A Healing Journey with 21 paintings, published by the healing center that she founded. She enjoys traveling, playing guitar, and having adventures.

I delight in using color, form, and rhythm to bring energy and resolve tension as I render the landscapes of Cape Cod, create abstracts of the inner landscape, and form figures within a landscape. I see my work as a “landscape of the imagination” beckoning views to enter their own inner spaces.
Love of music and jazz permeates my soul. My jazz series celebrates twelve Great Ladies of jazz, painting them as I responded with joy to their music, Billie Holiday Ella Fitzgerald, Alberta Hunter and others. I created a power-point presentation to highlight their life stories which I presented to a group of psychologists in Barcelona. The portraits of these women capture the soul of their gift and their struggle as African-American women.
