Annette described herself as an artist at the age of six. Nature inspires the colorful images she creates. She strives to capture the beauty and majesty of the sky, earth, water, plants, and living things with paint, canvas, and paper. Bold colors are the hallmark of her work.As well as creating fine art, Annette creates one-of-a-kind, handpainted jewelry, which she sells on consignment to galleries and on a wholesale basis to fine boutiques and gift shops. Visit her jewelry web siteto view samples of her jewelry and to read about her process.Annette’s motto: Never give up your dream. Work hard to achieve it.Note 1: All the artwork shown on this site is no longer available for purchase, only for viewing online. Annette is taking a long sabbatical and is traveling the country in a motorhome with her husband. She took some art supplies with her and will be painting only small pieces due to the space constraints in a motorhome. She sold many of the pieces shown on this site and donated ALL the rest to a hospital foundation so that she would not have to store them. Many people were surprised that she was willing to donate all that artwork, but Annette says, “I can always create more art.” Once she and her husband have settled down again, Annette will resume doing studio work. This is an exciting adventure for Annette, an opportunity for exploration that she couldn’t turn down.Note 2: “Ragone” is pronounced Ră-gō'-nē.
