I am Anne Brent

I am preoccupied with placement. I think words are underrated. I think pictures are powerful. I organize shirts by color and pattern. I think I may have obsessive compulsive design disorder. I plumb the depths and the breadth for the right solution. I think less is almost always more. I eat chocolate. I eat cheese. I drink coffee. I drink wine. I think they are the four food groups. I am founder and principal of Gallery No.9.

Get in touch and let’s make something amazing.
