About the Artist

Anne Erlewine works from her studio in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Anne’s paternal grandmother was a fine artist who encouraged Anne to develop her skills early on. Anne received a running scholarship at the University of Michigan where she studied art and writing.

She also studied intensive water color painting and figure drawing at Naropa Institute in Boulder, Colorado, during the Beat Generation reunion.

Anne teaches at Fiddlehead Forest & Art Camp, a partnership that she formed with Tara Habeck from the Ann Arbor Forest School where they combine nature walks and activities with art classes.

Look for her during summer 2024 at the Ann Arbor Art Fair, the Crooked Tree Art Fair in Traverse City, MI, the Brighton Street Art Fair in Brighton, MI, and A Fair In the Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.


Moving through life, holding space for creativity by practicing it and teaching it, creates sustainable reserves that allow one to close the loop between inner design and the outer reflection that affirms it. In a world receding in resources, the preservation of this aspect of human experience is vital.  

My art is about keeping this aspect in me alive, encouraging others to do the same, and seeking to portray and preserve what inspires me, so that others may see it, feel it – consider the path in their reflection of it. 

When an artist holds space for a budding artist to explore a world within, to attune to, connect with and bring forth the inner design of one’s expression – when an artist reflects in this world, where within one’s being creative freedom can be found – they are contributing to the continuation of a lineage actively engaged in the vital preservation of the arts.  

My grandmother was this artist for me. The depth to which she nurtured my creativity provided a reflective canopy for my development as an artist that has unfolded to inform me throughout my life.

She gave me the vantage point of reverence for cultivating artistic expression, taught me the importance of holding space to protect the conditions in which self expression can thrive, and taught me the methods for achieving this aim.

My work is the living example of this transmission. May you enjoy it.
