Annie St Martin
'Life is full of challenges so I paint to relax and feel at peace', chuckled Annie St.Martin as she spoke about her passion for the arts.
A Rhode Island native, Annie had a spiritual connection with the rugged coastline of New England. She has memories of a special childhood with loving parents and a house full of siblings and animals. Horseshoe crab races on the beach, quahogging with Dad, surfing Narragansett Bay and climbing the rocks along the jagged coast with the ever-present roar of the pounding waves, were all part of daily summer life for this tom-boy. The majority of her paintings showcase Mother Nature at her best.
Forever a student, Annie has been privileged to study with internationally acclaimed artists and is so grateful to her many teachers for their shared knowledge and guidance.
Annie is currently a member of Art Council of Southwest Florida, Alliance for the Arts in Fort Myers, Arts For Act in Fort Myers, FL, Pan American Alliance for the Arts, and Pine Island Art Association in Matlacha, FL.
Annie continues to exhibit her work in the Southwest Florida area. She is also represented by the Island Visions Gallery in Matlacha, FL and the Art Council of Southwest Florida CO-OP Gallery at Coconut Point in Estero, FL. Her paintings are in private collections throughout New England and Florida.
Annie is a student of life and strives to learn something new every day. Her deep faith in God and her zest for life, family and friends are always reflected in her art.
