Before this, I was a pianist: my life has always been an interesting and creative journey. I still play the piano when I have time, but now I'm focusing on visual art. I work in an advertising agency in Cluj, and at night- for few hours ( because, unfortunately, I need to sleep), I freelance and work on my own art business which I've started this year.

She received an Associates Degree in Commercial Illustration from Lansing Community College in Michigan. Working for many years as the Art and Design librarian at the University of Michigan in the School of Art & Design also had a lasting influence on her art education. Librarianship exposed her to thousands of books, magazines and other materials in the collection she managed. Being an artist herself helped her to understand and teach other artists to navigate the vast quantities of information available at the University. Working at the School allowed her to meet many talented artists, take workshops, attend lectures, see demonstrations, sit in on classes and absorb a world-class education. Throughout decades of working in the library profession, she actively dedicated herself to furthering her own artistic skills. Annie’s move to the California Bay Area in 2015 from Michigan was a remarkable opportunity for her to devote herself fully to art making and explore an exciting and diverse natural environment. Her work has been exhibited nationally and abroad and is held in private collections in many areas of the world.
