Current Works by Annie Rochelle and Colleen Thornbrugh

Annie Rochelle 

Annie Rochelle is a practicing artist working and living in her hometown of Knoxville, Tennessee. Rochelle received a Bachelors of Fine Art in Painting and Art History at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, Maryland and studied Italian Renaissance Art History and Painting Conservation at the Studio Art Centers International in Florence, Italy. Her artistic interests are divided: between draftsmanship and experimental abstraction; the challenging marriage of Old Masters’ techniques and traditional subject matter with contemporary aesthetics and social sensibilities. Her new interest in botanical forms have opened a new investigation into the relationships among human, artificial, and natural aesthetics.
