A child of professional artists, Annabelle has been making art of all kinds since she was a toddler. Her artwork has gathered top awards at the Alabama state level and the national level such as the prestigious Scholastic Art and Writing Awards in 2012 and 2013. Her winning paintings for both years were chosen to be exhibited at the U.S. Department of Education for two years. She was also a 2013 YoungArts finalist and scholarship recipient. Her work has been exhibited in shows nationwide including the Miami Museum of Art and the Kennedy Center in NY.
