Ann’s art principally focuses on land, sky and seascapes, for this series of work Ann has chosen to depict the beaches of Whitstable at various times of the day and year.
Inspired by the tide and differing British weather. In creating these artworks Ann would often stand on the pebble beach painting plein air watching the sea ebb and flow, the morning mist move across the Swale, the light on the horizon and the clouds coming in from the west over London.
Influenced by artists such as Turner and her former art tutor Alain Bordier. Ann’s paintings are impressionistic in style with a hint of abstraction.
Her technique involves building up a thin layer of paint before applying it more thickly with a pallet knife. The extent to which the painting is built with more impasto depends on the scene that Ann is painting and her mood.
