Born in South Yorkshire in 1958 and brought up on a farm, Anne was surrounded by nature for fifty years which bestowed in her a life’s long passion for animals and flowers.
Having always been interested in painting it became natural for Anne to record on paper her idyllic surroundings with wildlife and fauna being the obvious choice for subject matter. Anne enjoys painting nature as intended placing her subjects in their natural environment.
Anne has a fine eye for detail and to achieve such a high level of accuracy a great deal of research on all her subjects is undertaken. With clever use of light and colour Anne creates stunning acrylic flower and fruit studies and her animals appear to come alive staring out from their natural habitat.
Anne left school in 1974 and went on to study at Doncaster College of Art and Design gaining a distinction. Having left college at 21, she decided on a career in child care and now having retired Anne has returned to her love of painting.
Anne’s work is quickly achieving recognition with her first painting since retirement gaining overall winner in the 2012 Open Art Exhibition at Doncaster Museum & Art Gallery.
