SOMETHING A BIT DIFFERENT:
SHAMELESS SELF-PROMOTION

Overcoming my historic small-town, Midwestern, middle-class, Protestant, female, younger sibling and academic conditioning is a tad difficult, but, that said, I now want to share several practical applications of my creative work that we’ve added to “Annie’s Store.”
First are the garments and accessories available through VIDA, an international marketing partnership that allows artists to submit designs for fabrication to a collective in Pakistan that makes its own fabrics, prints digitally from submitted designs and makes the results available for purchase on-line. It turns out that a number of my abstract works have translated really well to these applications. To view the full line of my first collection, largely derived from paintings inspired by Argentine tango, follow my page.You can order directly through VIDA, not through me; items are custom-made to order only, and most of your purchase price goes to the artisans who execute artists’ design.

I’ve been having fun thinking about both of these projects, especially as so much of what people know currently of my work is — or aspires to be — representational, yet among my ongoing visual preoccupations are color, and pattern.

Annie has designed her first collection for those who love Tango. Here are a few pieces. Please click here to view the new accessories and purchase.

The second addition to my store is a jigsaw puzzle picturing a quilt-like fabric collage guaranteed to drive wild the most obsessive-compulsive solver of jigsaw puzzles on your gift list, as it’s fully abstract. I have these here and can send them directly to you.
