  • Biography

    Ann is a retired public health doctor and as an artist is largely self-taught. She developed her reputation as a plein air painter; working out of a beach hut in Whitstable and in the vineyards of the Loire Valley.  Ann has been painting in Whitstable for several years, standing on the pebbly beach watching the tide ebb and flow, the morning mist across the Swale (the water which separates the Isle of Sheppey from the mainland), the light on the horizon, the clouds coming in from the west over London, and the light out to sea to the north and east. The low tide exposes sandbanks, pebbles, seafood for the gulls to seek.

    Ann now has a studio at Nucleus Arts in Rochester High Street (UK) with whom she exhibits; she also paints in her home garden studio and in her Attic Studio she prepares canvases and framing. Ann is working on a series of shoreline, sea and skyscape paintings using her memories and imagination, her plein air paintings, sketches and photos from around the coasts of Kent, Cornwall and Normandy for inspiration. Ann begins with a thin coat of oil paint building on this using brush and then palette knife.  

    Ann paints in oils, usually on canvas prepared herself with acrylic gesso. Usually she then coats the canvas with turpsy red, often Indian Red, sometimes Burnt Siena or Yellow Ochre. When this is dry she lays out the scene with a thin coat of oil paints. She then builds on this, firstly using a brush.  Once the initial paint has been laid, Ann uses the palette knife to create thicker brightly coloured more textured works. 

    The extent to which the painting is built with more impasto depends on the scene and mood. Ann’s style is impressionistic, representative tending towards some abstraction and expressionism. Ann usually paints listening to classical music! She paints from memory, inspiration, from sketches and paintings and her own photographs. Ann’s paintings depict beaches at various times of day and year, state of the tide and weathers. Ann’s paintings can be found in The Eclectic Art Gallery in Margate.

Ann works quickly using both brushwork and palette knife, resulting in a freshness which is impressionistic yet creates a clarity of subject and defines the mood of the day.

Biography

Ann is a retired public health doctor and as an artist is largely self-taught. She developed her reputation as a plein air painter; working out of a beach hut in Whitstable and in the vineyards of the Loire Valley.  Ann has been painting in Whitstable for several years, standing on the pebbly beach watching the tide ebb and flow, the morning mist across the Swale (the water which separates the Isle of Sheppey from the mainland), the light on the horizon, the clouds coming in from the west over London, and the light out to sea to the north and east. The low tide exposes sandbanks, pebbles, seafood for the gulls to seek.

Ann now has a studio at Nucleus Arts in Rochester High Street (UK) with whom she exhibits; she also paints in her home garden studio and in her Attic Studio she prepares canvases and framing. Ann is working on a series of shoreline, sea and skyscape paintings using her memories and imagination, her plein air paintings, sketches and photos from around the coasts of Kent, Cornwall and Normandy for inspiration. Ann begins with a thin coat of oil paint building on this using brush and then palette knife.  

Ann paints in oils, usually on canvas prepared herself with acrylic gesso. Usually she then coats the canvas with turpsy red, often Indian Red, sometimes Burnt Siena or Yellow Ochre. When this is dry she lays out the scene with a thin coat of oil paints. She then builds on this, firstly using a brush.  Once the initial paint has been laid, Ann uses the palette knife to create thicker brightly coloured more textured works. 

The extent to which the painting is built with more impasto depends on the scene and mood. Ann’s style is impressionistic, representative tending towards some abstraction and expressionism. Ann usually paints listening to classical music! She paints from memory, inspiration, from sketches and paintings and her own photographs. Ann’s paintings depict beaches at various times of day and year, state of the tide and weathers. Ann’s paintings can be found in The Eclectic Art Gallery in Margate.
