Eco-Artist Anne Cummings creates from her conviction to reduce, reuse, and recycle. Most of her works use exclusively post-consumer waste as her artistic medium. Her intent is to raise awareness about the volume of human waste we create, and its toll on places of natural beauty, even in a state considered as ‘green’ as her home state of Vermont, as well as to use her eco-art to support environmental causes. Anne’s involvement in the arts has been a lifelong pursuit. Anne has worked professionally in the arts in many capacities. She has been a business owner, exhibition coordinator and designer, museum store manager, artists’ representative, graphic artist, grants writer, member of a fiber artists’ cooperative, and art consultant. Anne holds undergraduate degrees in studio art and art history from Ohio University and a Master’s degree from Saint Michael’s College in Creative Arts in Education. She is currently an art educator in Vermont and a working studio artist.
