Annalee Bohon, b. March 25, 1973
Annalee Bohon's artistic process often involves combinations of varied types of waterbased media, drawing in part from her 15 years' experience in the field of decorative painting. Her knowledge of these unconventional products allows her to experiment with various layering processes, incorporating more traditional techniques such as drawing and painting with techniques-like troweling-that are more often used on the wall.
Natural subjects and quiet, rich, pastoral or coastal scenes often find their way to Annalee's canvases. Growing up as she did in the vast countryside of (very) Upstate New York, these themes resonate deeplly with her, bringing her again and again to try to capture the feeling of space that surrounds the island of a grouping of farm buildings, the emotion of a fleeting moment in the presence of wildlife, or the visual interest and beauty that the eyes alone can see.
Her studies and creative path have taken her to the University of Rochester (B.A.), the Visual Studies Workshop, and the Yoga Society in Rochester, NY; a year of study abroad in Nantes, France; employment at the Knoxville Museum of Art and as an independent artist working closely with discerning clients and designers; and to many art classes and specialized trainings with highly skilled local, national, and international artists across the United States. She has lived and worked in Knoxville, TN since 1998, and her work is placed in many private homes across the area , as well as various galleries & design houses throughout the Southeast.
