Welcome to Ann-Marie’s creative world! A combination of graphic designer, fine artist, scout mom, and rock painter. They say when one door closes another one opens, and this was true when 15 consecutive years in the corporate newspaper world came to an end for her. This opened the new journey in the freelancing world. It is a rare opportunity to have the ability inbetween graphic design deadlines to be able to be painting on canvases and rocks, all while having the flexibility to play “Mom” her number 1 job. The ability to perform both passions was a view Ann-Marie never anticipated but with a focused work ethic, and the support of those who admire her skills, the freelancing path could not be made more clear.
Prior to the freelancing journey, Ann-Marie began her art focus by drawing pets with chalk pastels on suede matboard. There have been many beautiful pet portraits originally drawn for those pets who have passed. Ann-Marie added the acrylic paint medium to her toolbox and also painted them as well. More recently painting pet portraits on rocks have become a popular option among pet owners. Her pet portrait website can be visited at http://www.petportraitsbyannmarie.com/
