Annie Broderick is an artist in Arlington, Virginia. Annie grew up in southern Georgia and then attended The Taft School in Connecticut for her high school years. There, she flourished in the strong art program and received the Mark Potter Award in Art upon graduation in 2001. Annie then sought a Bachelor of Arts in Studio Art at Davidson College and received the Douglas Houchens Studio Art Award. During her junior year at Davidson, Annie studied art in Paris, France, where she painted as a copyist in The Louvre, fell in love with figure drawing, made her own oil paints, and immersed herself in her own artistic growth. Annie’s time in Paris still influences her artistic identity today. After graduating from Davidson in 2005, Annie moved to Washington, DC, and temporarily shifted her focus toward a Masters in Community Counseling followed by her own letterpress stationery business. Annie's unmet artistic needs and hunger for more direct expression as an artist pointed her back to fine art in early 2016. The decade during which she unconsciously distanced herself from pursuing her lifelong dream of a serious artistic career feeds her current creative energy, artistic output, and sheer drive to immerse herself in making authentic work. Annie's recent work has been featured in several publications and galleries, and her excitement and determination to create and show her work fuel her forward.
