About Annie Fu
Annie Fu is an artist originally from Taiwan, known for her oil plein air paintings that capture the beauty of the Pacific Northwest landscapes. Annie was born and raised in Taipei, where she was exposed to Taiwan's rich culture and traditions. From a young age, she showed a keen interest in art, and her family encouraged her to pursue her passion.
After completing college, Annie moved to San Francisco to study fine art. During her time there, she was introduced to the plein air painting style, which would become a major influence on her artwork. She was fascinated by the Impressionist painters and their ability to capture the fleeting beauty of the natural world.
After graduating with an MFA in Visual Development from The Academy of Art University., Annie moved to Seattle, Washington, where she settled and began establishing herself as an artist. The lush forests and rugged coastlines of the Pacific Northwest provided her with endless inspiration for her paintings.

She has taught art classes for children in the Seattle area and is beloved by her students for her patience and encouragement.
