Annie Wildbear, Bullhead City
Member Since September 2011
Artist Statement Annie Wildbear is originally from Southern California. She grew up in the college town of
Claremont. It was there that she had the opportunity to enhance natural abilities by
attending college art courses while still in high school. She earned her AA from Citrus
College in Azusa and a BA in art from Cal State Long Beach. Annie later enhanced her
skills by getting digital art training at Summit Career College in Colton, CA. She went on
to become an instructor at the school after graduating.
This new medium created a major transition that greatly influenced all subsequent work.
The “digital tools” opened an expanded array of possibilities. A technique that makes
use of the internet and photos taken with her digital camera as reference material has
developed into a process that morphs the analog with the digital.
Itʼs difficult to place Annie Wildbearʼs art into any, one specific genre or artistic category.
She uses this as an asset to redefine boundaries between fine art and graphic design.
Up-cycled objects are recreated into works of art. The on-going “Crate Label Series”
spans several years and ranges from small digital prints to large 4ʼx4ʼ mural sized
panels.
She enjoys working in a wide variety of mediums including traditional, unconventional
as well as digital. Sources of inspiration include: Type and letter forms, Pop Culture,
Found Objects, Swap Meets and Flea Market Finds, Toys, County Fairs, Defunct
Amusement Parks, Her Mac, Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop, Movies, TV, Music and
Art of all Genres, Kalifornia Kar Kulture, Funky Vintage Stuff.
Annie is able to translate a combination of media sensory overload and a life time of
experiences into her own unique “brand”.
