About The Artist

I am a graphic designer and senior partner at FdK Design Consultants but I'm relatively new to the art world, so still have a bit of ‘imposter syndrome’ and shy away from calling myself an artist.

My mother is an architect and art and creativity were very much part of home life as a child, so perhaps it's not surprising that I knew I wanted to be working in the creative industries from an early age.

I was helped by going to a school with an outstanding art department that encouraged creativity and basic art skills and it seemed completely logical to go on to study graphic design at the University of the Creative Arts in Epsom.

I loved my time there - this was in the days prior to the Mac and as well as the principles of design and design thinking, there was a great deal of 'craft' skill to learn; including drawing and painting, typesetting, artwork creation and much more.

Once released into the real world, I worked in a local graphics studio in Guildford before setting up a design consultancy with a friend in 1989, just as the Macintosh computer and desktop publishing were arriving in the UK.

We were convinced that this would revolutionise the graphic design profession and were one of the first studios to set up completely equipped with Macs. The 30 years that followed have been a roller-coaster ride, with highs and lows aplenty and although now much smaller than in our heyday, we continue to produce commercial graphic and communication design for companies of all sizes.

However, over time, I have come to realise that in bringing undoubted efficiency to the design process, the Mac has also taken something away and it feels like we may have lost our connection with those 'craft' skills and too often creativity is being directed by the technology, rather than by the designer.

With that in mind, I decided that I wanted to go back to my roots and have an outlet for my own creativity; something that would allow me to design and create pieces for my personal satisfaction, using both digital and traditional tools.

Currently I work primarily in ink and watercolour, but I'm also experimenting with digital art, linocut and acrylic painting, so my full portfolio is very varied, whilst I work towards finding my own style.

About The Artist

“Drama, Atmosphere and Movement”

Anne creates vividly expressive landscape paintings, inspired by the Surrey Hills. Her work is about capturing drama, atmosphere and movement and is characterised by gorgeous colours, free energetic and loosely-layered brushwork and gestural mark making. She loves to experiment with drips, splashes and distorted lines because these enable her to be bold and expressive.

She grew up among the terraced houses, slate roofs and mill chimneys of a northern mill town, surrounded by wild hills, becks and moors. An only child, she taught herself to draw by copying Disney characters and her dad’s Lancashire art shop was an ‘Aladdin’s Cave’. Fifty years later and having lived in Teddington, New York and California, the gently rolling hills, heathland, vineyards and wooded countryside of the North Downs have replaced the dry stone walls, moors and ‘dark satanic mills’ of her youth. Lanes, tracks, telegraph wires and undulating fields now inspire her to sketch lines and shapes, which gradually evolve into finished compositions.

That love of the majestic countryside of her northern roots is still with her, along with a sense of ‘theatre’ which she now realises grew out of her background as a young dancer and pianist. These early experiences resonate in her paintings now. Being in a landscape she feels calm, relaxed, yet alive and free and that’s how she feels when she paints.

After graduating in Fine Art at Reading University in 1984 she pursued a career in Education, primarily in music and completed an MEd in Creative Arts at Exeter University.
