Anne Royer, Artist
My work focuses on color and composition, and encompasses a broad range of subject matter. I am most enthusiastic about music, the synergy between musicians and artists, and creating paintings live during music events, which I have enjoyed here in McKinney.

During my graduate studies in Art History at Yale, I developed a strong business in decorative painting and murals. It was the perfect opportunity for me to explore and create original designs in styles from Classical to Contemporary, including French Provencal, Mediterranean, Art Nouveau, Art Deco, Early American, Japanese and Chinese.

I am privileged to be in McKinney during this surge in growth of its arts and culture. I'm particularly pleased to be a part of the Arts and Music Guild, the McKinney Art Studio Tour, the Art Club of McKinney, and the McKinney Creative Community. I also participate in, and help spread the word about, Second Saturday Art Walk every month in downtown McKinney. Please contact me to visit my studio, or look for my work at Orisons Fine Art and Framing on the Square.

My most recent work is something new, something I "needed" to do, bringing together my work with surfaces and painted effects to create non-representational images corresponding to the ancient ideas about human temperaments put forth by Hippocrates.

Anne holds a fine arts degree from Austin College and three Master's Degrees from Yale University: Religion and Visual Arts, East Asian Studies and the History of Art. She currently teaches art history at the Heard-Craig Center for the Arts, and fine art in her studio and at the McKinney Art House.
