Anne Herring Neilson began her artistic career with a successful pottery
business, Herring Designs, Inc. After a brief interlude spent focused on
her growing family, she rekindled her lifelong passion for art in 2003
when she began painting in oils. Neilson quickly became nationally known
for her ethereal Angel Series paintings which are inspiring reflections
of her faith and flair for color and light.
In October 2012 Neilson self-published
Angels In Our Midst, an inspirational coffee table book, which has
sold over 25,000 copies within two years. Strokes of Compassion,
Anne’s newest book was released in November 2014 and sold out within
weeks. Both books continue to be best-sellers across the country.
Because of the high demand of her original
oils and the popularity of both books, Anne continues to develop luxury
home products that complement her Angel Series. The growing line
currently features note cards, journals, prints and luxury candles.
Neilson paints with both passion and
purpose. Her passion is to paint. Her purpose is to give back to others
less fortunate in her community and beyond by contributing to local,
national and international organizations with proceeds from her art
shows, books and products. In 2013, Anne opened Anne Neilson Fine Art
Gallery in the SouthEnd area of Charlotte, representing over 40 national
and international artists. Anne lives in Charlotte, NC, with her husband
and their four children.
