When I see something beautiful, it inspires me to create. A photo might inspire me, the face of a child or raindrops. Color also inspires me. Color is everything. It makes me feel happy, at peace and loving life. Most of my work is colorful and bold.
I am attracted to textures, patterns and shapes found all around me, nature or man made. I like to use photos and text that I paint over with layers upon layers of colors, lines and shades. I use many different techniques to achieve my vision.
I have a degree in Fine Arts from the School of Visual Arts (SVA) in New York City. I work as a creative director for web and print projects.
Thank you, Annette! Very proud to have these pieces in our home. We enjoy looking at them every day. Bright, dynamic, textured, they are certainly eye catchers that brighten up the home. We love the use of gold leaf that glints in the light as you pass and draws a second look. Also, they were framed beautifully, and I am sure they are well protected for a lifetime in our home. We are always a bit concerned about fine art that is shipped, but you could tell that Annette took great care to pack them for the journey. Thank you again for a truly one-of-a-kind treasure.

“I was following Annette’s work on Instagram and watched the transformation of a set of paintings as she posted work in progress. I fell in love with them before she was done and was thrilled to see it exhibited at the ArtExpo in New York. My husband and I visited her booth at the art show and purchased Deux-Pair, the paintings really spoke to me. It was a real pleasure working with Annette, she even arranged the framing for me. The paintings have a special place in our newly renovated apartment and are often admired by friends who come to visit.”

Annette Back is a gifted artist — I walked into her studio, was stunned by a piece, and unsolicited asked, “may I buy that from you?!” Not a day passes that I do not admire that work in my home.”
