HOW TO FIND ANNETTE
Annette Hovey was offered her very first show at the young age of 16. Since then she has taught art classes at the Button Factory in Waterloo, Ontario, worked on album covers, and sold 1000’s of pieces across Canada and the United States.
Annette Hovey says
“As far back as I can remember I loved to draw and paint. The first sales of artwork I remember was when I was 13 and I was selling portraits of the kids in the neighbourhood for 25 cents. Then in high school I would do artwork mainly around Christmas time as gifts for other kids families and the price increased.”
“After high school I went on to College where I took graphic design and animation. I then found my way on to computer training at various tech schools where I was introduced to computer graphic design programs. To me it just seemed like a natural progression. I began scanning in drawings and paintings I had done, including a very small ink print that I had done by carving out an eraser to make a design of a fish. Once I had these on my system I began experimenting. I found that not using any filters or effects was my prefrence as it left the artwork in a natural state. The peices look very similar to an oil painting.”
“Now I enjoy doing a mix of art, from acrylic and oil paintings, to drawings, photography and digital paintings”
“Art is everywhere, around every corner looking for its next captured audience. Embrace it.”
