The Old Blue Shoes
This painting was the result of one of those instant inspirations that happen in random moments. Annie says 'I turned round to see my shoes lying on a rug, one on top of the other, and the start of a short story came into my head followed by the urge to paint them in their state of abandonment.'

Annie has developed an eclectic style that is not held back by constraints of singularity. Her approach to painting is quite philosophical. Annie will try to tease out the emotion of the moment by subtle positioning of the subject matter or adding something that will hopefully create a similar response in the viewer.
The art making process for Annie starts with the visual followed by thought then a quick sketch with notes. Sometimes a few photographs are taken as an aide memoir if the painting is to be completed in the studio. Often Annie will sketch or paint outdoors where she can feel and be part of the moment she is trying to capture.
Although Annie is primarily a multi-media landscape painter, she also likes to experiment with abstraction. In her abstract work Annie will often apply mathematical structures to inform the process and outcome. Annie is currently making plans for a new abstract project centred around language and communication.
