Hey everyone, say Hello to our featured RMS Artisan Team Member, Anne Freund.
I first met Anne at an Art is You retreat, hosted by Sallianne McClelland, in Petaluma, Ca back in 2015. I was a vendor on art night, debuting my newly released Found product line - the reproduction resin keyholes, escutcheons, baby dresses, and gloves. Anne happened to be a vendor of her Gilded Gypsies collection as well, and we hit it off immediately. She and I could talk shop and art for hours and hours.
She was so generous and gifted me a handful of antique military uniform buttons, which I have used in my own artworks. She is a very kind soul and super creative. If you ever get to meet her in person, read one of her books, or take a workshop with her, do. You will be inspired by her words, her eye for detail, and her friendly personality.
Anne was a perfect choice when it came time to select my first Artisan Team. We share many interests, including our love of vintage glampers, and buses! Mine a 1986 GMC Skoolie and hers a Classic PINK VW bus! I am honored that she is with us, and cannot wait to explore what is yet to come.
