Annalee is a landscape artist painting in oil and cold wax. Her greatest achievements in her art career to date is being awarded a 2022 grant from the NC Arts Council to continue her pursuit of painting plein air landscapes- sanctuary spaces to soothe and lighten one’s spirit; an Honorable Mention for her oil and cold wax landscape, Hameau Creek / Pink Clouds, shown at the Twin Rivers Art Association Exhibit at Bank of the Arts – May 2022; and she was selected as the July-September 2022 Emerging Artist in the Community Artists Gallery & Studio (CAGS) Annex, her first solo exhibit.
Recently, Annalee won two gold medals in the regional NC Silver Arts competition for her photography, Cow Wash, and her oil, Hameau Creek /Pink Clouds. The State Finals for The Silver Arts are in Cary, NC in September, and Annalee’s works have been entered.
Annalee’s intention is to place her works in places where healing is needed and to bring the calming sea, sky and landscapes that surround us into the forefront whether it be in our homes, our places of work or where we find solace, places to pray, ponder, meditate, listen and exhale.
Presently, Annalee shows her work with TRAA’s monthly exhibits at the New Bern – Craven Library and Nautical Star Coffee Shop where a percentage of proceeds funds TRAA grants to local public school art teachers. She is represented by Carolina Creations on Pollock Street, New Bern, NC.
