I am Ann White Schutte. Some days I am an artist, but everyday I am a wife to Jeff and mom to Jackson, Lindley, Molly and Addie.
Some of my favorite things are fresh flowers (no roses please), real butter, and those birds that run in and out with the waves but never get wet. (what are they called?) Favorite things aside from hugs and kisses from my family of course!
I have spent the last 12 years painting furniture, walls and canvas. Really anything that would stay still long enough! I graduated from art school with a concentration in metal design and though have changed mediums I find myself being drawn to form, line and composition in everything! I love old, new and everything in between and get great satisfaction from pairing the unexpected together and pulling it off. -though sometimes I only pull it off in my head...Ask Hooper!
My life is best described as controlled chaos though I like to find peace in my surroundings. Give me a big yard full of trees, chickens on my gravel drive, lots of art on my neutral walls, inherited furniture covered in pillows and I am a happy chick!
Here are a few things I have worked on...
I had the great pleasure of working with my brothers on this project. We designed the built ins around an antique chest the client wanted to keep. If you can sketch it, they can build it!
Like I said, If you can sketch it, they can build it!
these images were from an entire remodel. See here.
I had the great pleasure of assisting Hooper on a mountain house project. I learned so much and we were able to combine our styles for a result the client loved!
I love art on built ins
an unexpected yet perfect spot for the vintage antler collection.
a little rope and iron hook adds more interest to the botanicals flanking the front door.
A nursery project incorporating photographs as art.
And I got to paint a wall!
Thanks for taking a look at just a few of my favorite projects! -Ann
