Anne's been an artist from the moment she first held a Crayola in her hand. She was fascinated watching the amazing colors unfold and mingle. Anne especially loved the way a single color could look so different depending on the colors around it.
Shortly after Anne married, she quit her “real” job to work full-time with her husband Ron Labaire in his studio: Labaire Pottery. Her Crayolas and paints gave way to clay and glazes. In 1996 she and her husband opened Labaire Pottery, a gallery of art and fine crafts, inside Stone Mountain Park and two years later relocated to historic downtown Norcross, Georgia. Business boomed and it quickly became impossible to continue producing pottery while running a successful gallery. Her art soon came full circle: clay and glazes ultimately gave way to canvas and paints once again.
Anne still gets her hands in the mud occasionally, but her creative medium of choice has become acrylic paint and canvas. She and her husband have recently retired from the day-to-day running of the gallery and they've taken a studio at Kudzu Art Zone.
