Prior to painting full-time, Anne enjoyed a successful 20-year career as an art director working at both the national and international level. In that role she shared her creative vision through a wide range of mediums including brand and print design, advertising, space planning and large format installations and film and video projects.
Through her work-related travels throughout North America, the United Kingdom and Africa she has collaborated with many artists, architects, photographers, writers, musicians and directors. Her desire to be more involved with the physical making of art led her to move from the commercial side of design and art direction to working as a painter.
Anne obtained her arts education from Emily Carr University and the IDEA Program at Capilano University.
