When I entered the studio of Anne Cunningham for our session I was met with a calming energy. It’s a bright, happy space and immediately you are put at ease. I knew it was going to be a good shoot.

Anne is a metal artist whose medium is a fascinating combination of shapes, colors and textures. Her finished free form pieces come in all shapes and sizes. Anne has been creating art using metals since 1990. She incorporates metals such as copper, brass and aluminum and  discovers various ways to shape and create textures on their surface. Her pieces are layered with paper, chemicals, paint, dyes, inks and other metals. Each one is completely different than the last and as Anne says ” Every day is an experiment”. It was hard to keep my eyes on the viewfinder and not watch her apply her creativity as she cut, moved and attended to each piece of her current project on the studio table.

Anne has been very successful with her  artistic endeavor. She is represented in galleries up and down the East Coast. Her  work can be found in Corporate and Private Collections, a few being: PPD in Wilmington, NC, SAS Institute, Duke Medical Center, Bank of Birmingham, Wake Medical Centers and United Health Care in Salt Lake City. She has been published in several art publications. Her work was voted ” Best of North Carolina Artists, First Place in Mixed Media” as well as receiving awards in other exhibitions.

You can view Annes work and contact her concerning commissions by viewing her web site: www.anne-cunningham.com.  Visit, linger awhile, and enjoy this wonderful artist and her medium.
