A Gift-

I love painting other's homes. I feel that being able to paint and reflect the warmth of a house is a gift given to me. Each time I paint a home, I think of the memories and lives that are encompassed there.
I have no formal training in painting, but a sense of what works well. Many times I feel that I am possessed while painting. Those who are close to me are still astonished at this newly found talent.
How did Anna get into Jewelry??

After over a decade of working in pharmaceutical sales, I decided it was time to chill and spend more time at home with Jacob and Beth. In 2000, I had terrible back pain and was bed-ridden for a time. As many of you know, I am not a type b personality. I'm quite the type A motivated individual. So while I was in a drug fog- I took up Jewelry making for myself and later for others. That started Anna's Baubles.

How did Anna start painting?



In January 2002, motivated by Trading Spaces, I redid my bedroom and bath. I always thought that a mural would look excellent in the bath- so I painted a topiary and bird mural. Harry and others were pleasantly surprised at the outcome. So I tried my hand at painting on canvases. I continued to amaze myself. The painting just came to me as if I was possessed. In February, I painted a canvas of my house with the kids out front walking the dog. By word of mouth, my commissions started.
