Anne Stuer
Norway, ME

Anne grew up in southern New Hampshire and currently lives in Norway, Maine. She took classes in drawing and painting as a child and her love of art grew with her into adulthood. After moving to Maine in 1994, she took many art classes with artist Arla Patch, and explored several techniques and media, including watercolor, acrylic, pastels, mask-making, clay and more. Anne enrolled in her first encaustic workshop with artists Kim Bernard and Dietlind Vander Schaaf at the Maine College of Art in Portland in March, 2015. This ancient art medium ignited a new creative passion within her. To broaden her skills, Anne has taken workshops with encaustic artists Emma Ashby in Portsmouth, NH and Jorge Luis Bernal in Santa Fe, NM. She also attended the Maine Coast Encaustic Workshop Retreat in Kennebunkport, ME in 2015, 2017 and 2018. Encaustic painting incorporates elements from many of the techniques Anne learned over the years. She continues to explore its unique versatility.
