This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Self taught, Annie Lucas paints canvases that express and communicate her devotion to God. Some of her works such as "Seven Angels Having the Seven Last Plagues" are based on Biblical stories such as, in this case, the Book of "Revelations." On many of these canvases, she outlines her figures with thread, which gives a raised effect and also allows blind persons to experience her work.
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Born February 18, 1954, Annie Lucas grew up in a rural area of Autauga County, one of fifteen children. Her father died when Annie was five and her mother reared the family without re-marrying. "Mother was always sewing, and she could be so creative about making us new dresses out of flour sacks.' Annie learned to sew also, but her creativity grew beyond the necessities of life. In the seventh grade, Annie became interested in art and she began to dream of being an artist. About that same time, in 1966, she met Charlie Lucas, whom she later married. Charlie was already making things with metal when they met and she admired his artistic ability. They "grew up together, picking vegetables and riding the school bus." In 1971, when Annie was seventeen, they eloped to Florida. When they returned to Autauga County later and they decided to stay when the first of their six children was born. Through all the years of rearing her young children Annie's dream of being an artist was still present. It was not, however, until after her husband Charlie had suffered a disabling back injury, that Annie had experienced a 'vision of Jonah and the Whale' on the walls of their home. "Art was God's answer to my prayers." Annie now combines paint and needlework on stretched cloth to interpret Bible stories. She especially loves to paint the epic stories of the Old Testament as well as Revelations. Annie stays in constant motion caring for her fellow church members and family, which now include six grandchildren.
