Annie Darling is carrying forward her family’s artistic legacy in a way that is uniquely her own. Growing up, she osmosed the ingenuity and perspectives of her creative kin, whose talents are represented in a variety of professions– from photography and interior design, to sculpting and academia. Annie deepened her learning through an educational focus on architecture, psychology and marketing. After many years in the communications field, Annie turned her attention inward, and opened a space for personal exploration. Her recent encaustics reflect both emotional vulnerability and the resilience garnered through life experience. Though she is new to the Portland Art Gallery, she is no stranger to the artistic journey.
