Annie Perkins Rosenberg
Annie’s work is greatly influenced by nature. She adds distortion to the beauty that is often found organically, reminding the viewer of the harshness that mother nature can offer. Her work reflects the energies she sees in people, animals and plant matter through fine lines and imperfection. Her work embraces the the dark we all hold within and balances it with light.
She was born in a small steel town in Pennsylvania, then moved to South Philadelphia. Her work is a reflection of the many places she has lived such as San Diego, Oakland, and Seattle. She resides in the Portland OR area and embraces her nomadic ways and dreams of traveling the world.
On days when her physical body needs stillness, Annie allows creation to flow into many art forms as a way to express the ailments (and joy) of life. She uses this gift of creation as a healing method and art is her therapy. She began truly expanding her art while bed ridden for years due to her illness. On the days where she was able bodied enough she slowly began to create artwork and against all odds, began to heal as well. With all she has learned on her own healing journey, she now runs a website that offers free guided meditations for mental health, addiction and chronic illness at www.healwithyou.com.
