Annette Coleman

 

Artist BiographyBorn in Denver and raised in Littleton Annette still lives, works and produces art in Colorado.

Affiliations with The Colorado Women’s Caucus for Art and Core New Art Space, a Denver Artists’ Coop has helped build and shape Annette’s fine art career. While working full time as an advertising specialist Annette has developed a strong style and unique imagery in her fine art.

Annette is virtually fearless and incredibly resourceful when it comes to new creative challenges. She’s been known to work around the clock to master new software, raid her closet for just the right item for a photo shoot, or take the lead finding new and exciting venues for showing her work. Annette is Creative Communications’ founder and creative director overseeing art direction and design. After attending Colorado State University and the Colorado Institute of Art, she embarked on a design career that has included positions at the Denver Center for Performing Arts, the Colorado Historical Society, and a number of Colorado’s leading advertising agencies. She formed her communications company in 1993.

With over 130 individual and group exhibits to her credit Annette knows how to organize and put on art shows.
