Anne's Page

AnneAnne who teaches our classes was born in Northumberland but has lived “down south” for most of her life.


Starting out painting in watercolour she now also paints in pastel, acrylic and pen and ink and has recently discovered oils. Despite not wanting to be labelled as a flower painter she has had much success with her watercolour flowers.


Anne is still inspired by the long beaches and sand dunes of the North East Coastline and has painted many versions of Lindisfarne and Bamburgh Castle.


She has been an active member of Stevenage Art Society since 2000 and was re-elected as Vice Chairman at the last AGM. A few years ago she formed the art society into a company limited by guarantee and is currently a director and company secretary.


Anne has been painting for many years and has been teaching art at Leaside Church and Community Centre, Ware since 2008. More recently she has expanded her teaching to include classes at the Peace Memorial Hall, Codicote. She teaches watercolour, pen and ink, pastel, and drawing, along with the occasional acrylics session.


Some examples of her work can be found on our gallery pages here.


Anne is a popular tutor who has a “laid back” attitude to the class and is often heard to say “don’t worry – it’s only a piece of paper”. Her sympathetic and encouraging approach gives confidence to the beginners and improvers she has in her classes.
