Anne has achieved Signature status in seven National Watercolor Societies, not including the holy grail for watercolorists: AWS and NWS. She has won over 100 awards from competitive shows both locally and nationally. Her recent awards have been in National Watercolor Society, Southwest Watercolor Society, San Diego Watercolor Society.

She began taking images, some of which were very old, and manipulated them to come up with exciting results that put the fire back into her painting. These images had a “wow” factor that was missing from her compositions and paintings.

She has spent a couple of years working with her enhanced images and with opaque watercolors, and these paintings have been successful for her in competitions and sales. Mission watercolors have some beautiful tube grays, and she began experimenting by adding transparent watercolor to tint the tube grays, along with mixing paints by using opaque white watercolor.
