Anne Herring Neilson

Anne Herring Neilson began her artistic career with a successful pottery business, Herring Designs, Inc. After a brief interlude spent focused on her growing family, she rekindled her lifelong passion for art in 2003 when she began painting in oils. Neilson quickly became nationally known for her ethereal Angel Series paintings which are inspiring reflections of her faith and flair for color and light. 

In October, 2012 Neilson self-published Angels In Our Midst, an inspirational coffee table book, which has sold over 25,000 copies within two years. Strokes of Compassion, Anne’s newest book, was released in November 2014 and sold out within weeks. Both books continue to be best-sellers across the country. 

Neilson paints with both passion and purpose. Her passion is to paint. Her purpose is to give back to others less fortunate in her community and beyond by contributing to local, national and international organizations with proceeds from her art shows, books and products. Anne lives in Charlotte, NC, with her husband and their four children.
