A sense of place and home has always been a constant throughout Anne’s life.
Even though she has travelled extensively, it is not the exotic landscape, but the familiar that inspires her work.
Her paintings portray the land, plants and animals that inhabit the west coast landscape.
Anne’s paintings bring the everyday, the familiar into sharp focus for the viewer to experience in new way. Everyday items, a vista, a flower, become an opportunity to slow the senses and appreciate their beauty and simplicity.
She believes that art should be presented in a way that stimulates the viewer’s memories and emotions and enhances the positive, energizing qualities in our lives.
