Hermes' art was published in London's 2017 Summer edition of ArtMAZE Mag.  Earlier this year she was chosen as a contributing artist in Art For Life Chicago by a jury led by three-time Pulitzer Prize nominee for Art Criticism, and Senior Art Critic for New York Magazine Jerry Saltz.  She is featured regularly in a variety of exhibits from Milwaukee to Chicago, and her photography has been published in Photographer's Forum Best of 2015 book.

Hermes’ art is being used in the upcoming Season 2 of “Easy” on Netflix.

Annie was also chosen to be the first Artist In Residence at the Kenosha Lighthouse Studio in 2017.  The founder of that studio is Heather McGee.  McGee had this to say about Annie:

"She is delightful, engaging, funny, charming ... so, she’s a really cool chick with depth,” McGee said. “Her art is a mixture, I’d say, of postmodern and deconstruction-style work, although she works in many genres and media.

“She’s an interesting mix of carefree-obsessiveness. I simply love her. She is treating us to a graphic mural that has incorporated things we Kenoshans are proud of.”
