Profile Information

Where do you live ? City, State and Country
Place of Work ? Example: Studio, College, Gallery, Museum, ...)
my basement studio
I am a .... Example: Student, Maker, Educator, etc.

As I work my way through constant sensory overload, my enameling and metalsmithing pursuits explore ideas relevant to current brain-dominating subject matter. Frequent mind disturbances include nuclear power, planet degradation, imaginary space objects and creatures, molecular & cellular structures, mathematical pursuits, and all of their inter-connectedness. As a general rule, I am attempting t0 resolve the battle for brain dominance between chaos and geometry, expressing inner turbulence through abstract or geometric drawings.

Seeking to bear witness to a world scarred and degraded by abuses both vast and negligible, i invite the viewer into a space of speculation and hopefully, discussion. Perhaps from a very simplistic view, the world seems to boil down to a few “roots of all evil” and yet, in its own majesty, it is built on very sound mathematical principles. My work is a constant expression of how these “trouble spots” intertwine with all the beauty that geometry offers our planetary existence.

Anne has been an independent studio artist for 19 years, teaching 10-20 workshops a year and exhibiting in juried fine craft shows. Work is included in the permanent collection of the Enamel Arts Foundation as well as numerous private collections. Service is a critical part of my journey. I am a reformed CPA and now use my powers for good, as I like to say, explaining why the service on numerous boards of directors.

Hi, Anne!  Thanks for the friend request!  I cruised your photos this morning; so enjoy looking at your work!  I wear my little earrings often and always get nice comments.  Hope you are well, too.  I give my last final exam tomorrow and then it's all over but the grading -- hooray for summer in the studio!

Hi Anne, Thank you for the kind words! Graphite was the focus of my thesis in school. I fell in love with the physical quality of it, and that it could also make marks. I've tried using it in enamels a couple of times, and it's interesting. I like that it becomes permanent in the enamel. Your enamels are gorgeous! I particularly love the settings. They are so well composed.

Hi Anne,

I won't be in Toronto. My father passed away and I'm going to his memorial...I'm leaving soon and in the middle of grading before I go. but off the top of my head for exhaust fans, I purchased one from Grainger many years ago and talked with an engineer that was very helpful. Tell them what you are doing and they will suggest something. Getting a bigger one than you need is better then one that is too small, and the Less bends in your duct work the better, and if you have to have a bend, two 45 degree angles is better then one 90. Strait up to the roof is the best. Contact me again if you need to. I'll have more time in the next few weeks. -deb

I'm not sure yet. I'm graduating that week but I'm definitely going to try and make it up for at least a few days!

Hi Anne, it was great to meet you too! I was happy to see a familiar face on here! Thank you for your kind words, I love your work as well and I hope we meet again!

Toronto sounds like a great time, but I am not sure I can make it.  Haven't completely ruled it out yet, but it's unlikely.

Hi, Anne - thanks for the nice remarks about my work.  We seem to be working with some similar interests.  Glad to see you also work in series - very nice stuff!
