Anne has been painting full time since 1998. For
many years she painted watercolours of birds, many of which were supplied to galleries
around the UK and the United States. Other wildlife and botanical subjects have also
featured strongly in her work, and have been exhibited in Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and
Over the last few years she has
concentrated on still life in oils, inspired by the Dutch and Flemish Masters. She
does not seek to achieve photo-realism, but rather to convey an atmosphere of
stillness and a timeless quality that comes with many days or weeks of close observation.
Detail is built up in several layers of paint to bring out the various textures and the
effects of light on everyday objects. She loves rich colours and contrasting textures, and
hopes to inspire the viewer with the same enthusiasm. Anne has been a regular exhibitor
with Wren Gallery since 2007.
