My name is Anne Gatchell Greenstreet, and I'm an artist and software engineer living and working in Boulder, Colorado. By day, I work at Sphero, Inc, but by night and weekend I paints and draw as much as possible. I've been drawn to art since I could finger paint, creating with any media I could get my hands on ever since.
My art education is ongoing, and has ranged from local art teachers in Boulder, workshops taught by the likes of Daniel Sprick and Quang Ho, classes at the University of Colorado and Johns Hopkins University and the Academy of Art University, attendance at figure drawing workshops, and, of course, continued self practice and discipline.
My primary media right now are oil paint, ink wash, pencil, and colored pencil. I also do occasional graphic design contract work. However, if I didn't have to bring home the big bucks in software all day, I would likely also be sculpting with clay, making stop animation films, sewing clothes, and carving things, all of which are hobbies I've participated in previously. I just love to create, especially with my hands.
