Born in England and raised in Canada and the US, she moved to New York City in 1970 and lived there for twelve years working as a graphic/multimedia designer and fine artist.In 1985 she moved to California, first to San Diego, then in 1998 to Healdsburg. It was in Southern California that her painting evolved from abstract form to contemporary realism with a strong emphasis on nature.Living in Healdsburg, Anne's vision changed again; this time to reflect the surrounding environment. She painted landscapes and river scenes for several years until 2009 when other imagery took over - figures and objects, animals and fantasy. In 2011 Anne relocated to Charleston where she exhibits in the Wells Gallery in this historic city.
