Anne Offen is a self-taught painter and aspiring writer, currently studying creative writing at Emerson College. She uses primarily acrylic, watercolors, and glue to create her contemporary abstract paintings. As a differently abled artist, her work is a challenge to the “able” world that people who are differently abled are not a burden, but an asset, to society.
Offen began to pursue painting in earnest in 2017 after she broke her back in a rock climbing accident. While she has since made a full recovery, she was forced to put her plans on hold while she recovered, allowing her to begin experimenting with different artistic techniques. In the future, Offen hopes to continue to use her artistic skills to show that different does not mean less than.
