Annette Price is a Monacan and Cherokee artist, born and raised in Varina (Henrico County), Virginia. She has traveled many years as a Native American dancer; where she has seen and met many other dancers who have inspired her to capture colorful moments of various First Nation styles in her art. While Mrs. Price is not professionally trained, she has cultivated her beautiful painting skills through the love of her culture and by making regalia for other dancers. The artful and intricate detail of regalia, compels Annette to create paintings depicting Native people with honor. She also finds that it is important to express the dancers' movements in her paintings in celebration of First Nation culture. As another aspect of her art, Annette’s work in archaeology has led her to imagine people of times past where she tries to recreate images to show how Native ancestors probably lived and worked; with her main focus on the Cherokee people of Virginia.
Also in her portfolio, Mrs. Price has painted several landscapes. Whether they are real or
imagined sceneries, she strives to take viewers to comforting places. Most of her work features oil on canvas; however, many times she has painted on deer and buffalo hides to give her artwork a more historic look.
Annette Price has been featured in the Richmond Times-Dispatch; and with her piece, “Recognize Me”, she won the 2023 Rawls Juried Art Show.
