After 40 years working for others, in both Television Broadcasting and then Interior Design and Residential Construction, Anne is thrilled to return to her first love- Fine Arts. Her Expressionistic work has gravitated to watercolour and mixed media- for now. The subject will always be there, whether it’s in landscapes or figurative pieces.

Wood and water, sea and surf: these are the mainstays of my work. I paint on wood, some reclaimed from junk piles, some are exhibition wood panels, but all are chosen for the beauty of the grain. My painting begins with the wood itself, sanded and varnished, then the image is chosen depending on the grain. Wood stains and urethane are my mediums, and oil paint is added if needed for extra effect. I live on the water... and boats have always played a large part in my life. My work is the accumulation of these passions.
Drawing and painting were pass times I seriously enjoyed as a child. After graduating from high school, I spent a year at the art college in Calgary. The reality of making a living interrupted my studies and over the years I was involved in jobs unrelated to art. Eventually my partner and I owned a prepress company, supplying designers, ad agencies, publishers and printers.
My favourite subjects are people and animals. Living on Bowen has given me a lot of reference, and I love its scenic beauty. I learn with every painting, and at every opportunity. email@example.com

Open Summer Hours 7 days a week, Monday to Friday 11 - 4pm and weekends 10:30am to 4:30pm. We are just a two minute bus ride up from Snug Cove - catch the bus just outside the library. The walk up the hill is approximately 15 to 20 minutes but well worth the cultural experience at Artisan Square.
