Featured Artist: Anne Bradley

If you had window-shopped through Old Folsom, California between 1971 and 1994, you might have wandered into a row of little shops at 705 Sutter Street. Among the various boutiques there, you would have found a spattering of artists’ studios. And among them, you would have found the Back Street Gallery where Anne Bradley and her mother painted, created and delighted visitors with their artwork.

Anne’s mother was an oil landscape painter and Anne, influenced by her mother’s work went on, in her twenties, to take art lessons from their neighbor, a famous Russian oil painter.

Follow Anne’s journey through her art career and awards in the full-length article.
