Anne’s involvement in the arts has been a lifelong pursuit, from art classes at the Toledo Museum of Art as a child to creating and teaching art in many venues throughout her art career. Anne pursued a joint Bachelor of Arts degree in studio art and art history from Ohio University and later did graduate work in history and art history at the University of Toledo and Ohio State University. She completed a Master’s degree at Saint Michael’s College in Creative Arts in Education. Her current goal is to use her Eco-art to support environmental causes.
Anne has worked professionally in the arts in many capacities. She has been a business owner, exhibition coordinator and designer, museum store manager, artists’ representative, graphic artist, grants writer, member of a fiber artists’ cooperative, and art consultant. She recently completed a 21 year career as a high school art educator and is now focusing full time on her studio art practice, environmental issues, and community art and culture work.
