Annie grew up in Bountiful, Utah, and is the daughter of Cary and Sauni Henrie. Her father, a professional illustrator and fine artist, has taught his daughter how to paint and draw since kindergarten. Annie remembers her first art lessons in church when her father would keep her busy by drawing little pictures for her to copy. Annie graduated from Brigham Young University with a BFA in Illustration, where she gained much of her inspiration from studies abroad through BYU in England, Italy and traveling throughout Europe. Her religious art stems from the early Renaissance art she saw in Italy, combined with her experiences serving as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in southern England. Annie and her awesome husband currently reside in Provo, Utah.
Annie is grateful for her friends, family, teachers and Altus Fine Art for their enthusiasm and support in sharing her work, and is grateful to God for giving her the opportunity to create art.
