Annie Farley Bio –
I love Halloween!
I love funny & creepy!
I love ART!
Art, in some form or another, has always been a part of my life. A few years ago, I tried my hand with an age-old medium, paper mâché. My first project reminded me of a lion I made in
Mr. Hank’s 7th-grade art class. Yikes! This led me to a new find, which was paper clay. After experimenting with mixing, sculpting, and building, I knew this was my medium!
Sometimes I try to do pretty. Sometimes I do silly. Sometimes I do creepy. I have never been one to sit still, so I’m usually working on one project or another. My mind is always racing with new ideas, new shapes, etc.
