Born in the Adirondacks, Anne Rohe first started painting while attending Warrensburg High School. She minored in art a SUNY New Paltz. After college, Anne’s career concentration was elementary education. Her artistic pursuits were an occasional painting as a gift to a friend or relative.
In 2006, her husband Al Rohe decided to open an Adirondack rustic furniture business. He thought it would add a nice touch to hang some paintings of the Adirondacks in the furniture gallery. He would frame them in rustic Adirondack mode. It was a good excuse for Anne to rekindle her enjoyment of painting.
Using photos and materials taken mainly in Thurman area where their Adirondack Ambiance business is located, Anne paints and Al frames in their own unique artistic style.
Until now, these originals acrylic works have been displayed in private residences or in the Adirondack Ambiance rustic Furniture and Art Gallery on Route 418 just across the Hudson River. The gallery and studio are open summers on Monday- Saturday 10AM to 5PM. They would love you to have you stop in! For further information, please phone 518-623-3813.

Anne uses acrylic on canvas for her scenes. Although most of her paintings are landscapes, Anne enjoys including people (especially children) and animals. Old buildings and flowers are also common subjects. This summer”Have A Seat” in Glens Falls will be displaying one of Anne’s work on an Adirondack chair. It is a scene of Crandall Park called “Just Ducky”
Anne’s philosophy on painting is very simple, “I paint what I enjoy looking at what I would hang in my home.” This tends to be restful scenes in subdued colors, which are accented with a combination of natural materials Al, her husband, chooses to use as a frame for the canvas.
