Ann Marie Propst

Anne Marie Propst is a North Carolina impressionist artist who enjoys a variety of subjects and mediums. She enjoys still life, landscape and portraiture in pastel, oil, gouache or acrylic. She paints both small works and large scale as well. Anne has a studio in Concord, North Carolina, where she paints daily and offers art instruction to local students. Anne describes her art education journey below: I studied art as part of a quest for a Masters Degree at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, but the real work was done and is done at my easel. Many artists describe their journey as one of self education, but I feel my artwork is a cooperative effort. I have studied with many brilliant artists who have offered their skills in mentorship, workshop study and individual instruction. My primary contemporary influences include Anne Blair Brown and Lori Putnam. Anne is a member of American Women Artists, Piedmont Pastel Society, Daily Paintworks Gallery and the Cabarrus Art Guild. She has been honored and juried in many North Carolina art shows during the last decade including Carolinas Got Art as well as the Higgbee Gallery shows in California. One of her pastel pet portraits appeared in Pastel Journal Magazine with an accompanying article about Anne in 2015. One of her still life paintings was chosen (2019) to be replicated as a building facade in her hometown.
