Artist Annie Burke
Orcas Island, WA
Annie Burke is an artist based on Orcas Island.
She works from her home studio mostly in Porcelain and mixed medium sculpture.
“ My work is informed by the natural world. Having my hands close to nature makes me feel most inspired and creative.”
Annie finds inspiration beach combing and exploring her garden to see what is in bud, bloom, or pod, then taking those finds back into the studio.
“ My goal is never to replicate nature exactly, but to tell a personal story through it’s forms. The master artist of perfection is nature, in my work I am more speaking to the imperfect. This work is about appreciating the exhausted and imperfect part of being part of the natural world. Beautiful transformations happen as we age, are vulnerable and worn by life.”
“My current work is coming out of my pandemic experience and finding my patients, resilience, grace and authenticity.”
