Anne's artistic journey began over 8 decades ago. Accomplished in three-dimensional art as well as painting, she found her voice when she began to paint with a sewing machine. "The adventure started with wearable art...then it was just a small step to make thread paintings." 


With an acrylic sketch on canvas serving as a roadmap for her stitches, she heavily layers thread in free motion embroidery, creating precise color as she builds texture. "It is a very slow, but precise way to paint--imagine a paint brush the width of a thread!" 


Anne and Gerald Eckley lived in the Piney Woods of the Texas Gulf coast for 40 years before moving to Alpine. Her landscape paintings reflect their frequent travels--real places across the world and in Far West Texas--while her abstracts speak the universal language of Color. 


Pastel painting is the most recent passion of this ever-creative spirit with such a strong sense of design and intuitive understanding of color.

The Anne Eckley Collection at Old Spanish Trail Gallery is nothing short of remarkable. Feel free to contact us about  the thread painting that most interests you.
