annepic2011 I was born in London and studied painting and drawing at Richmond School of Art in Surrey, UK. I live in Richmond and work in my studio at the bottom of my garden.Many of the paintings on this site have already been sold, so the images shown are just examples. My paintings have been shown in many exhibitions and galleries around the UK and in London including the Pastel Society Annual Exhibition at the Mall Galleries. Details can be found on my exhibitions page. Framed works are priced at between £1,200 and £1,800. Notable commissions include the Royal Automobile Club in Pall Mall and Starbucks Coffee.

I have always been fascinated by people in everyday situations going about their daily lives. I like to observe people unselfconsciously getting on with things, interacting with each other, perhaps having a drink or a meal. My obsession with umbrellas shows no sign of abating. There is something about the shape which works well in a composition and I enjoy the way that watery reflections pick up light. Whenever it rains, I dash out with my camera – I get quite anxious if there is a long dry spell!
