About Annette Egan

My business name, Butterflynette Fine Art is more than just a play on my own name. It represents the current stage of my life, as well as my beliefs about how art is created. I have been in love with the arts since I was in grade school. I have dabbled in all things arts and crafts my entire life. I earned occupational certificates in Advertising Design and Illustration at College of DuPage, and then worked for a few years as a desktop publisher for a printer. I left that job to begin my favorite career - raising my children full-time. Over the years I still played with art, and in doing so realized that my true love lies in fine art rather than ad design. I love to paint, and now that my children are almost grown I have decided that it is time to add artist to my job resume. I am the butterfly emerging from her chrysalis as I embark on my journey of this stage of my life.

This comparison also applies to my thoughts about the creation of art. I find it utterly fascinating that someone can start with a blank canvas and end up with a work of art. Where does the artist get their ideas? Are all of these creations out there already, just waiting to be 'born'? Is there a higher power at work? Is the artist merely a vessel through which these ideas emerge? Or, is it the artist's own brain that conjures up all of the ideas, and just waits for them to be brought forth? I find it so exciting to start a new painting, having no idea what I'm going to do, and just see where it leads.
