What a wet and windy winter! It rained every day in March. The weather made the news almost every day. I saw this woman's umbrella turn inside out as she crossed Market Street in San Francisco. People couldn't help laughing.
I make art because I find beauty everywhere and it awes me. Sometimes humor too. I sell my art to people who love to laugh and to feel awe!

I was born into an environment where originality and creativity were prized and rewarded. My father, Henry P. Glass, is one of the icons of mid-20th century American industrial design, heading the ID department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago from the 1940s through the 1960s. He was my most important teacher. When I lost my father in 2003, I came to understand the value and the meaning of my own short time on this planet. I decided to work at art full time. I have participated in numerous juried exhibitions, including the Chicago Artists Exhibit at the Art Institute of Chicago and the Napa Mustard Festival. I have had solo exhibitions The Figure in Motion and Dance at the Winter Festival in Lencois, Bahia, Brazil and in Sauipe, Bahia, Brazil and in the U.S. She received Best of Show, Eye Candy at ArtworkSF and the Award of Merit in the Master Artist, Master Teacher Exhibition for figurative gestures in oil at the Tubac (AZ) Center of the Arts. My work is included in both corporate and private collections world wide, including St. Francis Memorial Hospital, the Canadian Embassy in Bangkok, and the collection of Leroi Moore (Dave Matthews Band). Her work has appeared internationally in books, posters and magazines and record jackets. I am a member of the Artists’ Guild of San Francisco. My name is AnneKarin Glass. I am a Vango artist. Thank you for visiting my portfolio.
