Anne Ehrlich

I  (a.k.a. Mineral Annie) am an artist, illustrator, and building designer living in Bella Coola, British Columbia, Canada. Prior to my freelance career, I worked as a designer in architecture and interior design firms in Vancouver, San Francisco, and Toronto. 

I graduated from the University of Toronto with a Master of Architecture degree (2011), and hold a BFA from Emily Carr University in Vancouver (2006).

Artist's Statement

My current painted work is a series of small landscapes and still lives that I imagine as plates torn out of an unknown illustrated travel journal. The paintings are an imaginary record of a return journey to a familiar landscape and set of found objects. I am interested in how these constructed encounters with an uncanny environment might remind a person of a place — maybe it sparks a memory an actual physical place they have visited, or perhaps it recalls an element from a stream of social media imagery — a manufactured memory. I see the paintings, and painting in general, as very small gestures of resistance — small rocks or resting places in a rushing river of images — even as they erode and inevitably become part of that river.
