Sunday, February 10th @ 3 pm - Anne Ward discusses and signs "If Paintings Could Talk"
DIESEL, A Bookstore in Brentwood welcomes Anne Ward to the store to discuss and sign If Paintings Could Talk: An iPad Journal on Sunday, February 10th at 3:00 pm. Please note that this event will take place in the lower outdoor courtyard adjacent to our store.
Anne Ward is a professional artist who has been exhibiting her paintings for the past twenty years. She began using the iPad as a portable studio tucked in her purse as a simple means of staying creative every day while raising her children. All the art in the book was made by Anne on an iPad. The journal shares stories and inspiration that accompany the paintings, patterns, and sketches. If Paintings Could Talk is one artist’s desire to share her creative process and explain how using an iPad has changed her relationship to her creativity. The book is a reminder to see and feel the small moments of life while making time for oneself creatively.
Anne Ward is a local artist with a deep love of her garden and painting every day. Anne is interested in how to use technology in more empowering ways. Using the iPad has allowed her to create every day and daydream more often. Her desire to reframe her relationship with her phone led her to create an app which pairs her paintings with a daily intention. Anne's free i-Intend mindfulness app has been downloaded by thousands around the world. Anne is an Artist Member of the California Art Club and the Oil Painters of America. She has been featured in magazines and periodicals. Her paintings reside in many private collections and reproductions of some of her oil paintings can be found online at Pottery Barn. She lives and paints in Los Angeles with her husband, writer/painter Ian Roberts. You can view her work and learn more about Anne on her website.
Copies of If Paintings Could Talk will be available soon in the store and for sale at the event along with some samples of her artwork.
