Anna Marie's impressionistic paintings are expressed with bright, clean color. After years of rendering colorful landscapes, florals and other traditional scenes of the Jersey Shore, she has recently taken her work in a completely different direction. She has perfected a technique of applying intensely rich watercolor pigments on archival synthetic paper. The result - representational forms juxtaposed with surrealistic images, bordering on abstraction. .
Her paintings hang in corporate and private collections on the East and West Coasts and in Great Britain.
