Annette was born and raised in the Niagara Region of southern Ontario.
She started drawing and sketching at a young age. She can’t remember not ever having a passion for art. It was an inexpensive pastime and as long as she had a pencil and paper, she was able to express herself. She took art classes throughout high school where she was able to learn the fundamentals of drawing and painting.
Annette and her husband both love the outdoors, therefore retired in the West Arm area of Lake Nipissing.
Since retirement, she got involved with the community by volunteering with several local organizations, including The Backstreet Gallery where some of her artwork is displayed.
Her involvement with the gallery has given her the opportunity to work in collaboration with other local artist on murals and other projects within the community. She loves to spend time outdoors, as well as in her studio where she has been experiencing with pencil, charcoal, ink, pastels, acrylic and oils.
