Author: ANNiE

Hi, I'm Marianne Hines. Most call me ANNiE. The nick is short and sweet and not at all like me. I’m 5’11” and happiest when there's sand between my toes, when I'm dirty, windblown, and adorned with the debris of whatever project I'm working on. I build, design,and create in many forms. I’ve spent most of my life in the Northwest. Twelve years ago I came to the southeast for love, that love is now my husband. I love London and Paris for the art, food, and architecture. I love Spring and Fall, mountains, untouched snow, the smell of a horse’s mane, the sound of paper dry leaves under foot, birds singing, reef snorkeling, flea market hunting, and cooking for friends who love to eat, to be loud, and to laugh.
