“I draw and paint what is around me: landscape, garden, animals, treasured pieces of pottery... Through a range of media I try to shift these subjects into more imagined presences. My pictures are essentially about marks, colour, gaps, edges and punctuation combining to create atmosphere.
“Many of these drawings arise from observations on the coastal edge where I live, in the wonderful end-of-year light when trees and plants display so dramatically their skeletal forms. My attention is increasingly focused on the wild margins between town and country – spaces that are rapidly disappearing.”
Ann works closely with poets and her work has appeared in books and magazines. A number of her paintings have been hung at the Royal Academy Summer exhibition and her work is mostly in private collections. She is currently working on a book of her drawings.
