Anne Rivers started painting and making collages professionally in the mid 1990’s. Anne’s Journalism degree didn’t provide her with an art education, however, she loves books and has collected them to inspire and educate herself on art processes.
Out of college in the mid 1980’s, Anne had a career as a reporter, PR writer and newsletter creator. Later, she began working in Human Resources and became an HR Director. Anne’s first show was in 1995 and was a group show with a local painters club called the Lakeland Painters. She has been painting and showing her work ever since. However, in July 2014, Anne decided to quit her HR job and completely devote herself to painting.
Anne has studied privately and in workshops under a variety of extremely talented artists who have graciously shared their knowledge and experience including Dixie Purvis, of Georgia, Jane Davies, of Vermont, Bob Burridge, of California, David Kessler and Joe Digilio, both of North Carolina.
Anne has shown her work in local and regional galleries in Michigan including the Tamarack Gallery, the Vesuvius Gallery, the Carlyn Gallery and the Flying Colorz Gallery.
