Annais a new Bristol based artist with a passion for the sea and the wild outdoors. She loves to paint high energy pictures of sailing, windsurfing and skiing and finds herself captivated by light, water and snow. With a penchant for high contrast, dynamic scenes she breaks away from fine art tradition with her preference for capturing the buzz of action. Her portfolio also includes a growing gallery of portraits, particularly of children. She uses a range of media to give her work colour-brilliance and bold texture and usually paints on canvas or board.
She comes to painting in her forties with a career in executive coaching and a background in physics and engineering. Her preference for learning is to study and pick up tips from established artists and her style is constantly evolving.
Anna loves to paint from attractive photographs and often prefers to understand what the client loves rather than to paint for general appeal. The images on her website give a feel for some of her recent work, much of which has been commissions. If you want her to paint something, she is waiting to be asked by you!
