About this Product

Growing up in a basement apartment nestled in south side Chicago, Annie Moten, with her seamstress mother and older brother, learned life skills that have carried her to becoming Annie Lee, successful artist, seamstress, entrepreneur, and gourmet cook. Today, many on the subjects for her paintings of African American family life and women's daily experiences come from memories of childhood and from the challenges Annie faced as a single mother working to support two children. As demand for Annie Lee's artwork grew, she decided to save time painting by leaving the faces blank of her "little people", as her creations were called. These featureless, and yet so expressive images have become her trademark. Today her paintings and reproductions of black life are sold in over 2.000 galleries throughout the United States, Germany, Europe and most any place in the world where black people buy and request art. It has been noted that Annie's work is not limited to the black experience only. One writer said her subjects contain within them a yearning for simplicity, for happiness, for fulfillment that we all share, despite age, race, or income.
