Meet the Artist
She creates collage portraits that are deconstructions of familiar everyday faces, to shed light into the sinews of their being. She strives to merge fantasy and reality in each composition that lead us to the dreamland of human emotions. Dostoyevsky, Ibsen, Bergman and Hitchcock inspire her, including collage artists like Hannah Hoch, Max Ernst, Martha Rosler and John Stezaker. When you meet her, you’ll realize very quickly that teaching art is her passion.
- Introduction to the basics of collage, mixed media, abstract art, color theory and composition.
- Creating composited images from found, taken, and scanned images.
- Learning the techniques of masking, edge treatments, color space, shadows and highlights, texture, perspective, depth of field, harmony, symmetry, and narrative.
- Practicing how to make the disparate elements meld seamlessly to create a sense of magic realism.
- Going back home with several of your own dream collages or photomontages.
- Paper, magazines to cut from, glue and paint for mixed media are included. You can print photos or buy stretched canvas at an additional cost.
- Meals and snacks while in the studio.

Annette seemed to know instinctively when to weigh in and when to let our ideas percolate. Sh Read more

This was a magical and much needed experience. I learned so much from Annette and her hospitality was unparalleled. Staying in a pastoral Greek village surrounded by roses, olive trees and grapevines was the perfect setting to feel inspired and make art. Annette was so supportive and encouraging. The food was amazing, fresh from her garden; the conversation intriguing and the art inspiring.

Annette was a wonderful host and teacher to my sister and me. We felt totally at home in her beautiful house and really enjoyed getting to know her, husband, and their dogs!

She prepared lovely, healthy meals for us and our accommodations were clean and comfortable.
