Artist shares new book of paintings and the stories behind them

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Charlotte-based artist Anne H. Neilson painted her first angel in 2003.  She says that painting helped her find her voice.

Now her Angel Series is the centerpiece of a new coffee-table book which also shares the stories behind the works of art.

Neilson visited WBTV News Saturday Morning to talk about the book and her love of painting.

A portion of the book's net profits will benefit charities including The Harvest Center, Levine Cardiac Kids, Allegro Foundation and Presbyterian Hospice and Palliative Care.
