[1] She studied at the Atlanta School of Art, now known as the Atlanta College of Art. Cone-Skelton's work is represented in the collections of various regional museums and galleries, public and private collections. The High Museum, the museums of Louis, Charlotte, Chattanooga, Birmingham and Montgomery and several academic institutions including Cornell University hold her work. She has been included in exhibitions at Le Grand Prix de Peinture and the National Museum of Women in the Arts. In 2000, she and David S. Golden co-founded the Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia.

Annette Cone-Skelton employs a minimal approach to the elements of color and shape to explore relationships of space to human dimension. In 9 Women in Georgia, she states that "When one draws a line one time, it is a line. When one draws line a thousand times, it is transformed."[2]
