After painting for a while in oils, Annie chose watercolor as her medium because of its transparency, luminosity, and spontaneous traits. She loves the adventure of following where the painting leads. Although watercolors can be quiet and gentle, Annie prefers to create a cheerful mood with vibrant and dramatic colors. Because watercolor painting is such a joy, she often loses track of time when picking up a brush.
Annie holds active memberships in the Watercolor Society of North Carolina, High Country Watermedia Society, Cabarrus Art Guild, and the Mooresville Art Guild.
Through the years she has had the privilege of studying with Susan Crouch, Sterling Edwards, Leslie Fehling, Jan Groenemann, Joyce Hicks, Joe Miller, A.J. Schexnayder, Brenda Swenson, and Wes Waugh.
For the last six years, her work has been exhibited in many North Carolina juried exhibitions, judged shows and galleries and won numerous awards.
Currently you can find Annie’s art at these North Carolina venues: The Billy Graham Library, The Billy Graham Training Center, and The Guild Gallery in Concord.
In addition to exhibiting and selling her art, she enjoys teaching workshops in watercolor painting, sketchbook journaling, color mixing, watercolor batik, and book-binding. If you would like to schedule a workshop, please email at: Glacken@ctc.net.
