IDAL Instructor Biography
Annie has taught for several years at IDAL events as well as other professional events, teaching verre eglomise at four IDAL conferences. Her business, Main Street Arts LLC, was founded in 1980, while attending the Maryland Institute College of Art, and offers a variety of decorative and artistic surface applications and design, historic paint restoration, and gilding. Her interest in working with gold leaf started early in her career, and after studying verre eglomise with master artist Miriam Ellner, she was hooked on gold and glass! Further study with artisan Sandra Spannan and working side by side with other glass artisans further enhanced her range of work in this medium. Annie does private commissions and creates unique glass pieces, to the trade.
Annie is a Professional member (and former board member) of IDAL, a member of the Board of Trustees of the Society of Gilders, and in 2017, was invited to become a member of SALON and exhibited in New York this past April.
