Ann uses many different types of mediums in her art. The above picture is a mixed media though the rest featured here are oil paintings. She also enjoys other forms of art like embroidery, needle point, art journals, sewing and has a special love for drawing using silverpoint. I have learnt so much about art through my friendship with Ann which I am so grateful for.
“I think my favourite piece of art that I have created is my Lion. I did this at the time when my mum had just passed away. I was thinking about the Lord taking her home and He is the King. The king of the jungle came to mind and I painted this lion as a tribute to my mum.”
I asked her what advice she would give to a new artist. She said, “Just start. Put one line on the paper and continue from there.” She believes that there is no right or wrong way to do art, “All of the great artists started the same way with one line. Don’t give up as it takes time to learn. In time you will come into your own style.”
