    Spire Trends: Nice to meet you Anne… could you tell us a little bit about yourself?

    Anne Marie King: Thanks for the interest. I am a Norwegian artist , married with two kids, two cats and a handful of birdies. Art has always been my passion and i took several art classes in my youth. Then life had other plans for me. I restartet making art only a few years ago , now i am taking it to a new level .

    Spire Trends: What is your art background? I mean how did you start...

    Anne Marie KingSince I was a little girl I have always loved to draw. When i was asked what I wanted to be in my life I answered; I don't know , all i want is to draw' . I have a total of 4 years of drawing- education . 3 years spent to become a graphic designer. 

    After high school all I still ever wanted to do was to draw, so i thought designing was the way. I never really fancy the commercial part of it, so after those three years i had enough.   

    Then I took a year at a private school called 'Einar Granum' Kunstskole' . Best year of my life. Now I was expressing myself just following my own flow Here I learned the basics of painting and drawing in different techniques. 

    We drew from live models and was outside and studied buildings and rivers. After that I tried to enter the art academy here in Norway , But I never made it . I was too insecure. Eventually I dropped out to make a living . Then life had a turn and gave me a second chance to be with my passion . Now I am grabbing it with all my heart.

    Spire Trends: What are your main inspirations and subjects of your art?

    Anne Marie KingArt is a peculiar thing. I have this urge to express myself . And my way of doing it is by making pictures . I find inspiration everywhere . In nature But also in relationships. I put a lot of Feelings into my pictures . 

    My hope is that When people look at my pictures it will be emotional, like it touches them in a way . Maybe reminding them of an experience They've had and recall a special feeling . Open up the senses so to speak.

    Spire Trends: What medium do you usually use?

    Anne Marie KingYou asked about subjects in my art , I like to work with different medias . I have developed a mixed media technique Where I work in layers of watercolour and pastel chalks, to create silhouette pictures. 

    These are strong coloured happy pictures and people seems to love them. I have my contrasts and a dark side that I express in black and white. These are I think more emotional When I drew portraits or nature with charcoal and other dark mediums like black ink. 

    Spire Trends: Where do you sell your art works. Where else can we find you online?

    Anne Marie KingI have had a few exhibitions . But most of my works are sold through contacts on social medias like Facebook and Instagram .

    I am very active on those two medias and post daily and appreciate When people contact me there. You will also find me on Pinterest and Tumblr and my shop in Etsy.
