But he drew snapshot pictures that told what he was experiencing. And so began a different kind of artistry. Anette draws ordinary people. With simple pencil-strokes she expresses those strong emotions we all have inside. Her picture “The loving couple” is known throughout the city. This is a portrait of two artists with intellectual disabilities.
