About

As a child growing up in Papua New Guinea‚ Ann’s art has always been influenced by the colours of the rainforest‚ the unique wildlife‚ the ocean and the beauty of the tropics but it was not until 2006 when the family moved to Alice Springs that Ann began to explore watercolours.
Fascinated with the extreme colours of the Australian bush‚ Ann began painting native flora such as gum trees‚ gum leaves and gum nuts before adventuring into character paintings of emu’s‚ camels and other Territory wildlife. These always reflect her unique and colourful style and remain some of her most sought after works.
Ann’s subject matter varies‚ but her paintings continue to feature the vivid colours of the Australian bush and an occasional glimpse of her wry sense of humour and unique perspective of life as she sees it.
Largely self taught Ann has been influenced by other artists‚ learning technique‚ style and method through workshops as they’ve become available.
Ann’s work has been regularly exhibited in the annual show and the Advocate Art Awards in Central Australia in 2007‚ 2008‚ 2010 and 2011 with some success. ‘River Gum’ was awarded ‘Highly Commended’ in the Advocate Art Awards in 2010 and ‘Bush Gossip’ (an emu clan) and ‘Rocky Outcrop’ awarded 1st and 2nd prizes in the 2011 annual show.
Ann’s long time goal is to be able to take more time to paint and to plan & launch her first public exhibition in 2015. Currently Ann’s art is held in private collections internationally and throughout Australia.
