Annie Smits Sandano
Recent achievements include having an original piece rolex replica sale for the Wallace Arts Trust collection, and having two pieces selected as finalists for the Waikato Society of Arts Waikato Youth Art Awards. In 2010 The Hilton Group purchased a large original piece for it's newest hotel in Queenstown. Denis Robinson's 2010 book, New Zealand Gallery, featured Annie as a vibrant fake rolex sale artist which is quickly becoming recognised as a significant contributor to contemporary printmaking practice in New Zealand with a strong following that extends to Australia with representation in galleries in both countries.
An important part of Annie's practice is the donation of rolex replica sale to numerous organisations to raise funds for various causes. Past collaborations with Save the Children, Greenpeace, SurfAid, and the Braveheart Youth Trust have exceeded expectations. A recent collaboration with Save the Children has yielded a Christmas card design that has been printed over 7000 times, with all proceeds from sales going to the organisation. Annie is also involved with fundraising for Greenpeace New Zealand and has donated a limited edition wood cut print to Greenpeace’s Webb’s Auction House fundraising auction.
With projects on the horizon in 2013 including two solo shows in New Zealand, as well as an exhibition in the USA, Annie is fast becoming a household name and her works are selling out as highly collectable additions to any art buyer's portfolio.
