Anne paints in both pastel and oil from her home studio in Cooroy, Sunshine Coast, Qld and teaches pastel workshops, classes and demonstrations. Living by a lake in a bush-like setting, Anne finds plenty of inspiration for painting subjects, however a love of travel and exploration has led her to also find creative inspiration much further afield.

Artist Statement – My childhood was spent on the beautiful Atherton Tablelands, in tropical Far North Qld, Australia with rainforests, crater lakes, waterfalls and mountains. Much time was spent outdoors, and my love and appreciation for the natural environment was nurtured from a young age. I paint in response to this emotional connection to my subject, delighting in the beauty of unspoilt nature, be it the rugged beauty of the bush or the vibrancy or delicacy of a flower. The mediums I employ include both soft pastel and oil, and I enjoy the unique qualities of each. I enjoy capturing the contrasting variety of colour, texture and form in the landscape and the illuminating power of sunlight. I paint en-plenair whenever possible, especially if travelling, and this helps me to observe unique characteristics of new subjects. The feeling of being present in the landscape is what I seek to instil into my work often imparting a feeling of repose, an escape from life’s often too frenetic pace.
