About the Artist


Biography (b.1969)

AnnMarie is a New York – born photographer who has spent almost two decades exploring self-portraiture. Her images deal with aspects of and issues in her personal life - turning toward narrative, sometimes fairy-tale and romantic imagery that hint at contemporary ideologies.

Always performing for the camera, AnnMarie sets up dramas either within the confines of her studio or in isolated outside locations that make up the backgrounds of her stories. Technically speaking she has moved from traditional photographic materials to modern technology to aid in her exploration, including digital tools and software.

AnnMarie graduated from Long Island University in New York with a BFA in Photography, magna cum laude. She has won several awards and exhibits internationally. She has been reviewed in The New York Times, Newsday, and other local newspapers and has been published in fine art magazines and other printed media. Virtually, her photographs have been featured on art blogs and online fine art magazines. She has spoken at universities and artists’ groups and her images have invoked essays and prose. Her work is included in several personal and institutional collections in the US, Canada, UK, Hungary and Japan and most recently, she has moved from the U.S to France.
