Collaboration with Flowrsinher Hair


In case you didn’t know Flowrsinher Hair is an art name of a very talented Cape Town artist Jeanne-Marie Webb. FB community of artists often call her simply Flowers. She is indeed very beautiful flower-like gentle soul: JeanneMarieWebb01

So “Soulful Sisters” is my collaboration with her:


Jeanne Marie has visited me recently for a weekend of fun and inspiration. On a spur of the moment she suggested we make an artwork together, and we have filmed it along the way. We started with painting 2 faces on 1 large piece of paper, using only 1 reference (just to see where the light falls and to guide us in the color palette.)

Ok, are you ready to see the reference?!! I am closing my eyes now… 3-2-1… Ta-da!!!


What?! I know, right?! Flowrs hardly used the reference, she is rebellious like that. And I was like: “Hey! Are you using the reference?!” And she was be like: “Ummm… Hmmm… Yea…” I used it a lot! (That’s the way I paint). Somehow this lovely warm green have crept into our work and tied it all together. And the light fell where it should be.

She painted her side for a while and I painted mine, and then we swapped sides and interfered with each other’s work, then we swapped sides again and the artwork was done!


Magic happened! We are both in love with this work, but who gets to keep it? Tough decision… So, we have to sell it. It went to Flowrs shop.

And here is the video incase you missed it:

Collaborating with 3 year old Tallulah Jade Rainbow


I have a secret to share and I am very excited about it! But before I get to that, here are some recent news on what's happening creatively. I have just created this 2 min 40 sec promotional teaser video, collaborating with my artist-toddler, for a 1 year long workshop Life Book 2016, were I was invited to teach online next year. Here - she pushed me out of my comfort zone and shocked once again:

Behind the scenes: art collaboration with a toddler from Annie Hamman on Vimeo.

The actual video of us painting will be released here on 18th January:

Soooo... Since the secret is related to me and Tallulah, here is few words about her.

Tallulah Jade Rainbow Hamman is my 3 and a half year old daughter who is painting large abstracts from the age of 1 year and 3 months:


At the age of 3 Tallulah already completed over 30 large acrylics on canvas and had her 1st successful solo exhibition in June 2015 in Hermanus, South Africa, where many of her works here sold.

It all started accidentally, as I was looking for a ways to keep her busy while I paint, so I gave her canvas and paint. She got busy, and something marvellous happened: the artworks were pure fearless expression of a child's heart and they were vibrant, complex and beautiful.

Here is a video of Tallulah making a painting on her own, beginning to end:

To see more of her videos and completed artworks, read about her process, bog post about exhibition, tips and tricks on how to start painting with your baby, and many more things, please visit Tallulah's blog that I ran on her behalf:

Let's get to the point - at last!

I am working on 2-3 week workshop called "Fearless Expression" that I pan to release approximately February next year. It involves sharing Tallulah's painting process and our collaboration, where I will talk about concept of fearless art and how to approach it as a mother, grandmother and an artist. I have already filmed great deal of material and busy gathering my thoughts together into exciting and original plan. I can only tell at this point that it's going to be something quite different!

Let's Face It!



Dear creative friends!

I cannot believe 2015 is coming to an end, and what a creative year it has been! I am almost overwhelmed to think about next busy year ahead of me. It seems like I will be teaching in 3 large workshops together with other teachers. Plus 3 entries for Stencil Girl Products – wow!

I know some of you have been asking my to refer you to a fresh face painting workshop out there, and I could not give a definite answer on it up until my new discovery now:


The recent invitation I have received and accepted was from all year round workshop “Let’s Face It 2016” hosted by wonderful Kara Bullock. 17 fabulous teachers will be presenting videos for the whole year on huge variety of techniques related to painting faces: realistic, expressive, whimsical, profiles, three quarter, face forward, with shoulders and even with whole body attached to it, lol. Everything is covered on faces, plus more. I will be doing face profile in acrylics with palette knives and later in the year whole body: face, figure, hands, feet, plus detailed composition all around, almost like in my workshop “Soulful Art” , but well different.

Prepare to be amazed! Who are the teachers? Some girls I know via FB and they are totally awesome: Olga Furman, Ivette Newport, Robin Laws, Angela Kennedy, and many more names you will recognize if you go to check out this page: LETS FACE IT

Look at some other teachers’ work! OMG, I wanna paint like that:



Juna Biagioni

Ady Almanza

Lucy Brydon

I will be honest, if I wasn’t invited as a teacher there – I would have signed up! Because it is always an awesome idea to learn painting faces from others. I adore faces and so very very excited to be a student of this course, let alone teaching in it!

I hope to see some of you on the workshop next year and lets create together. (Shshshsh.... I believe it is last couple of weeks of early bird discount there!)

Accidental Painter Of Angels


It’s been couple of years since I noticed winged or saint looking women appear in my art. I go through mostly same process every time, that I described in my Soulful Art Workshop, where I gather together collage elements, shuffle them around until they form a story, then draw it into composition and start to paint. I almost never have a plan for an angel or a saint. I am just thinking of painting a girl with dreamy soulful expression. More often than not, some kind of wing would appear behind my girl, I wouldn’t even notice it at first, but then eventually I would – and then I accentuate it even more, or leave it as is. Laughingly, I started calling myself “accidental painter of angels”. Whether I want it or not – they come. This one I completed today. She doesn’t really have a wing, unless what you see on the right  - is kind of a hint for it. This time, she really wanted a halo, so I gave it to her. “It goes with my complexion”, she said. Whatever you want. Although I haven’t painted you yet, you already exist, the way you want to.





Here are few stages of this artwork. Originally I planned to paint it very light, almost white throughout, but it did not result in that way. It wanted drama and mystery, and vibrant vibe. Ok, I will roll with it.



I called one below "the ugly stage"! All artworks go through it before emerging on the other side:





Final result. "Messenger." Acrylics on canvas. 22'X28'. Canvas border is 1.5' thick. Original available in my Etsy Shop.

Here are the images that inspired me while creating this artwork.





Art supplies used:

Acrylics, Golden range: Quinacridone Red, Quinacridone Nickel Azo Gold, Hansa Yellow Opaque, Cadmium Red Light, Prussian Blue, Titanium White. On the dress I used Golden Open Slow Drying Acrylic in Titanium White. It really helped me with drying time to scratch out those patterns patiently.

Down the rabbit hole...


I just turned 38 on the 15th and celebrated with passion! In recent month my art took into few exciting directions with teaching online and discovering fresh ideas in creating art. I was invited to teach in 3 placed through online video tutorials in 2016, two of which Life Book 2016 (2 entries) and Stencil Girls Products (I will be making there 3 entries next year!), and third multiple teachers workshop which I am not allowed to reveal just yet (but soon!). Meanwhile my 1st workshop Creating Soulful Art With A Story have began and sky-rocketed to the stars with positive feedback from 200 hundred students and all the incredible artworks they have created:



And here is one of the numerous feedbacks received:

I spent yesterday morning and evening watching all the videos and the whole time I was saying "yes, yes, YES!" Sometimes you find an artist that just helps you grow and I definitely found that in Annie. - Jennifer Congora Perry

More testimonials and student artworks you can see HERE. Registration is still open and I am available for support until end of September.

While the workshop was unfolding in all it's beauty, I've been buzy collaging and journalling to my heart content. I created a series of 12 of these cute 6.5'X9.5' Alice in Wonderland Cards that I just adore. I have been wanting to do that for years and finally decided to go ahead and make my childish dream come true. To make these collages I re-purposed baby first words cards:



And here is the result:













And last, but not least, please have a look at this amazing review this talented writer Elizabeth Cooper wrote on my workshops. Being a professional writer, Elizabeth was always fascinated with story art, so she took my workshop on Creating Soulful Art With a Story to discover new ways of exploring her interest through paint. This well written and very positive review left me surprised, humbled and very inspired as a teacher:
