AnneKarin was born in Chicago into an environment where originality and creativity were prized and rewarded. Her father, Henry P. Glass, is one of the icons of 20th century American industrial design. He was her most important teacher.
She believes her greatest technical strengths are in composition and use of color and line with expertise in the figure, abstracts, narratives, and still life. For many years she focused on sculpture but currently she is working in two dimensions, oil, water color, caran d’ache and pastels.
AnneKarin’s greatest inspiration comes from the beauty found in nature and in the human form, as well as a joyful story or one with a twist or mystery. She enjoys the challenge of capturing the elements—the light, the wind, the color in the shadows—and experimenting with materials.
She has soloed in the U.S. and internationally. Her work has won awards locally and at the Tubac Center for the Arts. She has participated in group exhibitions at the Art Institute of Chicago, the Napa Mustard Festival and the Green House Gallery in San Antonio, among many others. Currently Hammond Art Consultants, Roseville, CA and represents her work. AnneKarin’s art is included in both private and corporate collections worldwide.
