Raised and educated in Chicago, Annie (she/her) was surrounded by creative people, cultural activities, and a dynamic visual landscape. She pursued an undergraduate degree in art history, a masters of architecture degree, and ultimately, a two-decade career in design. Annie also did strategic communications work for the development office at the Harvard Graduate School of Design.
Today, Annie is committed to making and promoting art. She regularly enrolls in art classes, exhibits, and plays an active role in community art organizations. “As a novice painter, I understand firsthand the role institutions like the New Art Center play for emerging artists.”
Annie has been collaborating on public art projects in Wellesley for nearly a decade through the Public Art Committee, the Art in the Park Steering Committee, and during Covid, co-founded Art Wellesley, an organization committed to promoting the arts in the community.
