"I MUST paint"

Anna Rose Bain is a rising star among art collectors and the art world.  She can often be found in award winning positions of notable art competitions, or on the front cover of prominent art publications like Art Connoisseur, Art of the West, Southwest Art, American Art Collector and with over with 65,000 followers and her youtube channel.   She engages in training developing artists through her extensive volume of online teaching videos.  Beginning with her childhood passion and relentless drawing, she has earned these accolades with hard work, tenacity, paired with the inner compulsion and gifting from God that she cannot quench, nor would she want to.
