Anna Haulenbeek

Paintings & Drawings


A native of New Jersey, Anna Haulenbeek Huskey attended Ohio University and here discovered the Dance department after which she received her B.A. in Modern Dance performance and choreography at Mills College.  After finding out she was more comfortable creating in a private venue rather than performing she taught dance with the Santa Cruz County Cultural Council in the SPECTRA artist in school programs. She also taught dance in different adult school classes throughout Santa Cruz County, and Cabrillo College community services.

She found another way to be behind the scene and still create. Drawing and painting with her young children she discovered that she loved to draw and paint. The past thirty years she has been drawing and painting with inspiring teachers from which Michelle Giulvezan-Tanner, Melinda Cootsona and Jerry McGlauglin influence her the most.  

She has participated in the Santa Cruz County Open Studios for 2021 and 2022. She exhibited at the San Francisco DeYoung Open Exhibition in 2020, the Eloise Pickford Gallery, and First Friday Santa Cruz (2012).
