Annette Bennett was raised a city girl, but shes always had a passion for farm animals. Majoring in Animal Science at Texas Tech and Texas A&M, Bennett worked in the animal industry. After retiring, Bennett took up watercolor painting and its become her favorite medium. " I always saw livestock as a commodity – a number – a product. It wasn’t until I started painting that the animals connected more with me than painting a barn or a tree. I paint as a way to connect with the animals and see them in a different way – an elegance – a majesty – some fun – and yes, some glamor. I feel that each painting has a life of its own and that each animal has developed a personality. I enjoy sharing this with others who can look at my paintings and laugh, smile, or admire. I hope that when you look at these animals you will also see them in a new way!"
