Annie Becker :
My artwork is about second chances and new beginnings. It’s about making something out of nothing, and hopefully creating some happiness along the way.
Since I made an exit from the corporate world, I have spent a lot of time creating – drawing, painting, assembling, mixing, gluing, etc. I don’t have one specific area of focus, but all of my work has a common theme – it is created out of discarded and previously used materials. Some vintage pieces from antique shops, flea markets and estate sales; some construction waste rescued from dumpsters; and I have to confess, I have stopped to take stock of discarded stuff on tree lawns. I believe most things deserve a second chance!
I hope you enjoy looking at my art as much as I enjoy creating it.
Cleveland has been described as a rust belt city with a grey climate. But what most of the United States does not realize is Cleveland has a lot of vibrant, lively and culturally rich neighborhoods. It is because of these neighborhoods and it’s colorful people I choose to paint scenes of Cleveland using lots of colors. I particularly like placing colors opposite each other in the color wheel next to each other to create a lively palette in my works. Since I was a youngster I have always been drawn to the work of impressionists. Taking the time to look closely at my work and you can pick up these influences.
