The Art of Anne Moorhead
Jane Austen once wrote "know your own happiness." Bellevue, Washington native Annie Moorhead has come to know her own happiness when she sits down with water, brush, palette, and paper. With a bachelor's degree in Art History, a professional career at the University of Washington Libraries, and a handful of art lessons from her local art studio, Annie draws and paints her realistic and geometric birds with a focus on detail, aesthetic, and joy. When she's not working or painting, Annie watches and photographs birds, reads, hikes, snuggles with her cats, and spends time with her family.
