Anki Wickison Watercolour Artist,
born & educated in Sweden. Her natural artistic talent came to light in her school years where she was advised to pursue this talent. However, the desire to see the world first and earn money to do so left no time to advance on her artistic talent Anki chose Cairns to settle in 1986 but it was moving to Flying Fish Point by the sea near Innisfail in North Queensland in 1993 that gave her inspiration and time to develop her artistic talent Anki is self-taught, but her artistic skills also benefited from attending workshops with different renown Australian artists. Her love for landscapes, architecture, boats and sea scenes allow the subtle use of light and shadows in her work.In 1996 Anki moved onto a 60 foot yacht to circumnavigate Australia, the forward cabin was fitted out as her studio. Anki lived and sailed for 16 years and painted when she had time in different ports, during that time painting mainly seascapes and boats. A lot of yacht commissions were painted and exhibited in different towns along the coasts of Australia.
She had a few years break in her painting when she moved back on land. Anki took up her painting again in 2012 when she moved to Currumbin on the Gold Coast in South East Queensland . She moved to Nannup in Western Australia in 2018. Anki is building a studio/gallery with her partner just 500 metre outside Nannup on the Brookman Highway.
Anki paints mainly in Watercolours but she also works in other mediums such as Pen & Wash (ink & watercolour and Pastel. She has been painting in Watercolours for 29 years and is more passionate about it now than ever. Anki has had one Solo Exhibition in Hobart 2008, very successful 80% sold. She also exhibited with other artists and has won three first prizes, a second prize and several highly commended awards as her recognition for her work along the Australian coast .Anki also painted on board a cruise ship to Antarctica in 2014, her paintings were auctioned off on board the ship and the money raised Anki donated to control the “rat plague” in South Georgia, Antarctica
Anki’s work is hanging in private homes in Australia and around the world, like Sweden, USA, Japan and Europe.

Australian Landscape and Seascapes give me a great buss to paint.
En Plein Air (painting outdoors)

AFFORDABLE ART ....I try to keep my paintings at a lower price because I believe that people should be able to have an Original Painting on the wall.
I never make any prints of my paintings...so what you buy from me is ONE OFF
