Artist Annie Swincinski hails from State College, Penn., where she keeps busy working in watercolor, printmaking, and charcoal drawing. A graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design, much of her current subject matter involves flora and fauna.
Of her work, Annie says, "I especially delight in translating my natural environment into the bold graphic forms and patterns that dominate my work. I just love the medium and all forms of printmaking. There is so much chance and mystery involved. I am never able to tell what my final work is going to look like. This is a great exercise and a freeing moment for me because I am naturally a very controlling personality. I am most easily influenced by the current trends in home decor and textile design. I love the repeating patterns and simplicity found in the current market and would love to one day launch my own line of home decor."
