Annie Decker McAward
Exhibition & Wine Tasting
Friday June 15 from 4-6PM

Artist. Life Enthusiast.

Annie was born in Brooklyn, NY, grew up on Long Island, NY and has lived in Sherman, CT with her family for almost thirty years.

Her style would be considered to be an abstract expressionist,  "impasto” style of painting. The layering effect of paint coupled with the intentional pairing of colors that compliment brings excitement and energy to her work. She paints mostly oil on canvas. Her style and approach is constantly evolving, creating a strong range in her body of work. 

Annie has studied with Ira Barkoff at Washington Art Association , “Painting Your Passion”, Kathleen L’Hommedieu at Studio 130, & Dmitri Wright, Silvermine Art

If asked, she will explain that her inspiration is formed by experiences in nature, walks in the woods, beach and sky, ever-changing light and color, and the observation of human emotion. Perhaps the greatest pleasure and the completion of a creation is when something about the way she sees the world resonates with someone else.
