Ann Dunbar is an award-winning artist whose style is both classical and romantic with essences of impressionism executed in a contemporary way.The landscapes, seascapes and imaginative compositions, inspired by her travels abroad, are soulful and serene. You find yourself transported into a world of flickering lights on an abundance of silken textural stitchery. The scene shimmers and spring to life.
From a young age, Ann was dedicated to her artistic pursuits, with support and encouragement from both parents and teachers, her talents blossomed.
She went to attend formal art training in the UK, both for a teacher's degree and a degree with honors.
Whilst teaching, Ann began experimenting with mixed media and after many years of research, she developed a remarkable technique, finding her signature of marrying her paintings with embroidery.
Her passion for this magical combination is still evident in her work today. Ann's paintings are in many private world-wide collections.
Ann is represented by a gallery in NSW Wales Australia called Shoalhaven Fine Art Gallery, near Jervis Bay. She has work permanently on show there.
Her studio is near Paris and is open through appointments made in advance.
