life is too short
Life is indeed too short to not do what you love.
I’m Anna and I am so happy that you are here. I created this website as a place for community, inspiration, learning and sharing my art. My goal is to have a less formal setting to just be myself in my posts.
A bit about me on the professional side:
I have been an artist my whole life, except I saw it more as, “I prefer to draw then do math homework.” As I grew older, my artistic side never dwindled. In fact, it became stronger. I could never imagine a world where I would no longer would draw or be creative.
Through a few life experiences, I became drawn to photography because it gave me the ability to capture my life and save it. Photography became my world. I wanted to know more so after the encouragement of my big brother I went to school for it. I graduated from George Mason University with a BA in Art and Visual Technology with Concentration in Photography. The learning never stopped after that. I kept my skills sharp by learning from other photographers and creatives on sites like CreativeLIVE and YouTube.
Did you know?
– I am a retired Wedding Photographer? I photographed weddings with other photographers and by myself for 7 years! I loved it!
– I had two food blogs? I am not going to lie, I have a passion for food and eating so I explored this avenue for a solid 3 years.
– I worked as a marketing manager for a Colorado based real estate company? I learned so much during my 3 years at iHOMES COLORADO. It was such an amazing experience working alongside the owners to establish and grow their online presence. I learned so much about homes and my favorite part was creating the marketing plans for our listings!!!
A bit about me on the personal side:
My husband and I have been together since 2005. We have two kitties (Leela and Stealth) and a Chihuahua rescue (Betsy). We moved to Denver from DC just over three years ago and have been loving the mountain/city life! Being able to have access to ski resorts within an hour from our home is AMAZING!!
