Annie is a senior at Bard High School. She is from Brooklyn. She is interested in museums, and her sister convinced her to join Youth Insights. Annie joined YI Artists during the spring of 2013 and worked with the artist Dave McKenzie. She enjoys art because she likes the personal connection it gives her with the artist’s subconscious. One of her favorite artists is Keith Haring. She was a fan of the Jay DeFeo exhibition at Whitney. She likes DeFeo’s work and that she made realistic things abstract. Outside of the Whitney, Annie likes to knit and do darkroom photography. She already has two college credits, and hopes to graduate college in three years.
