Anne Traynor

Anne's lifelong love of art was realized when she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Dayton with a major in Illustration and simultaneously completing a program in Commercial Design at the Dayton Art Institute in Dayton, Ohio.

For the next 20 years she worked as a Fashion Illustrator and as an instructor in Design, Illustration, and Color Theory at Sinclair Community College. In the 80's Anne launched her own publishing company which became a regional standard for over 12 years.

Anne's passion for travel led her around the world, including Egypt, and her study of ancient art led to the idea of reconstructing tomb paintings and exhibiting them in galleries and art fairs around the mid-west. A reputation for this specialization opened the door to be featured on television and acquire various commissions including designing the "Tomb Room" at the Empress Casino in Chicago.

In 1998 Anne moved to Arizona to focus once again on fine art. She resides in Fountain Hills, close to family an the thriving art communities of Scottsdale and Sedona. She continues to surround herself with color and inspiration to produce pieces that will bring personal fulfillment and joy into the lives of others.
