About the Artwork:
Anne travels throughout North America on sketching trips as inspiration for her landscapes. When she returns to her studio she refers to her pencil sketches and memory to work up her ideas. Her paintings are developed by using a layering technique called "glazing" which is a lengthy process that allows her to pay meticulous attention to detail. Anne's work is quite unique, in that many viewers have commented how her scenes remind them of where they have been or what they have experienced at a certain period in their lives. Her favorite sketching locations are Ontario, Quebec, British Columbia, Nova Scotia, Cape Cod, Vermont and Maine. Anne's most recent sketching trip this summer was in Quebec.
Occasionally, Anne works with "still-life themes", particularly in watercolors. The still-life is a natural extension of her work where her collected objects are juxtaposed with botanical themes.
Anne's paintings are available through the following Toronto Galleries:
