Anne Jenkins
You hardly expect to be greeted with a British accent when you enter a gallery in tiny Union Point, Georgia. Truthfully, you hardly expect to even find a gallery. But Anne Jenkins, the artist & owner of The Point of Art, is full of surprises. Starting out in South Africa, the pallet of Anne’s life has been layered with experiences from a lifetime of traveling the world. She has landed here after being uprooted from New Orleans by Hurricane Katrina. She is a self-taught full-time artist, adapting materials and techniques to her artistic themes. Anne’s heartfelt connection with people in far-flung places is reflected in her art. From the strength and sorrow of desert women in Africa, to the joy and tragedy of the residents of New Orleans, her paintings show an understanding of the pleasures and troubles of life. Now she has come to embrace the simple happiness, bright colors, and charming critters of rural Georgia, giving her paintings a fun folk art style.
