Now in her fifth decade of art practice, Annette has had a varied career spanning disciplines, media and genre. As a young artist, she depicted the prairie landscape using silkscreen printing as her medium of choice. Then in mid career, Annette became passionately involved in theatre design and followed that path for many years while still maintaining her role as an art educator. Today she works out of a studio in East Vancouver utilizing a variety of mixed painting and drawing media employing the human figure as the focus of her practice.
Working both from life and from photographs, Annette seeks to expose not only that which is obvious in the sitter’s physical form, but also to explore the layering of individual narrative - the stories of experience and lives lived.
