This is about your connection to water.
Over the past four years, I successfully completed over 30 commissioned paintings for private collections, galleries, and public institutions, locally and nationwide. Together, my clients and I work with a body of water that is significant in their life. During chaotic transitions of life or quiet moments of peace, it is important for us to reconnect with nature, especially water, to remember that we are a part of the larger cycles and rhythms of the earth. This is a celebration. This is about healing with nature.
This process may include:
- selecting the body of water that is most significant to you
- joining me in an honorable harvest at the location of your choice
- participating in intention-setting and writing on your canvas
- receiving photos and updates throughout my painting process
I would love to hear from you! Let's collaborate and create something beautiful for your space.
"From our first meeting about the possibility of commissioning a work in memory of Mom, all the way to delivery of the painting, working with Annie was so fulfilling. Her philosophies on art, humanity, and our relationship with the Earth all resonated strongly with me, and everything about the project felt serendipitous. Annie so clearly valued the sharing of my stories and memories of Mom, and was eager to integrate them into her process, which made the project (and the product) deeply meaningful to me."

I commissioned a piece by Annie for my dad of his beloved property on Lake Superior. Working with Annie was an absolute dream. Her passion for the work, as well as her desire to learn as much about her clients, their chosen body of water, and their relationship with water gives her paintings a level of deep meaning, spirituality and connection.
The care, thoughtfulness, compassion and skill that Annie channels into her painting is what makes the pieces so incredibly powerful. Annie has the incredible talent of being able to put on canvas the stories, feelings, thoughts and memories shared with her. I could stare at her paintings all day long and be lost in thought with possibility, a deep sense of calm, and trust that everything flows into the next thing.
