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 15 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...
A nursery project incorporating photographs as art.
And I got to paint a wall!
You know we love our porches in the South... the charcoal and cream painted floor was the perfect touch in this outdoor space.
Thanks for taking a look at just a few of my favorite projects! -Ann
