ANNA, Assistant Manager

Anna grew up in Ocala and has always been inspired to create! Her grandmother was a huge influence on her and was her inspiration for becoming an artist. Anna’s grandmother even gave Anna all of her art supplies when she decided that she could no longer paint. Anna is self taught and her favorite medium is painting on canvases, although she has made some of our glass samples and is having fun creating the glass projects as well. She loves her job with us and says that the time just flies when she is working! She loves to spend time with her boyfriend and enjoys long boarding on the Greenway . Her dream would be to get a big bus and take a road trip with a bunch of friends!

MEGAN, Assistant Manager

When Megan graduated from West Port High School in Ocala she wasn’t sure what direction to take with her future. She considered a career in medicine, but then decided that art was where she wanted to spend her life. She is currently a student at Santa Fe Community College in Gainesville where she will soon acquire her AA in studio art. She loves painting and drawing. She hopes that someday she will be able to write and illustrate her own children’s books! Her favorite thing to do when she is not working or studying is bicycling or spending time with her boyfriend or her best friend “Noodles.” She also loves spending time on Wikipedia looking up and learning about “weird” random subjects. AND – she LOVES “hunting” in thrift stores.
