We are proud to introduce to you, a beautiful and brilliant artist whose artwork has been some of our most popular pieces since she came on the art scene.
Annie Henrie Nader grew up in Bountiful, Utah, and is the daughter of Cary and Sauni Henrie. Her father, a professional illustrator and fine artist, has taught his daughter how to paint and draw since kindergarten. Annie remembers her first art lessons in church when her father would keep her busy by drawing little pictures for her to copy. Annie graduated from Brigham Young University with a BFA in Illustration, where she gained much of her inspiration from studies abroad through BYU in England, Italy and traveling throughout Europe. Her religious art stems from the early Renaissance art she saw in Italy, combined with her experiences serving as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in southern England. Annie and her awesome husband currently reside in Provo, Utah.
Although Annie has dozens of best selling works of art, it’s always exciting when an artist creates something new. This is recently the case with Annie, and we are excited to introduce and highlight her 4 newest pieces for you.
Ministering Angels by Annie Henrie Nader
Annie describes this painting: “This painting highlights a woman in prayer, with angels watching over her. Gold leaves are falling around her, representing her own sacred grove, as nature is often a spiritual setting for prayer and reflection. The angels may represent each of us as we find ourselves in the role of counselor, friend, and comforter as we minister to others around us.”
What a beautiful reminder of our new responsibilities as ministering brothers and sisters.
Angels to Guide Thee
Angels to Guide Thee by Annie Henrie Nader
Annie tells us, “This painting focuses on the power of prayer and its ability to help us connect to our Father in Heaven and to feel the presence of heaven in our own lives. This painting helps us to remember that our prayers are heard, and that we are not alone, as mentioned in 2 Kings 6:16 "And he answered, Fear not: for they that be with us are more than they that be with them."
Guiding Light by Annie Henrie Nader
Annie explains, “This painting is centered on our individual relationship with the Lord. This is a sacred moment in which a woman in prayer is watched over by her Savior, who lights the way before her. It is a reminder that Jesus Christ is acutely aware of us as individuals, and rejoices when we seek him and allow him to guide us to joy and salvation.”
Angel's Gratitude by Annie Henrie Nader
Giving us insight into this new painting, Annie says, “This painting is of an angel tracing a halo around a woman in thought. It is a gesture of gratitude for the woman's kindness and thoughtfulness, and represents our gratitude to those who give selflessly but are often anonymous in their service.”
We indeed, feel privileged to have Annie as one of our published artists and always look forward to what she will create next.
