“I love to paint, to bring to life a landscape in acrylic. At 23 I moved from Masstown, Nova Scotia to Grande Prairie, Alberta where I lived for 8 years. While there I met my husband and we then moved to his hometown of Hanover, Ontario. I have always had a craft of one kind or another on the go. A few years ago while looking at the pictures of the places we’ve been my husband suggested I paint them and I never looked back. My main medium is acrylic but I also paint with oils. I am continually going through my pictures to find the next masterpiece. I do commissions and I would love to paint a landscape picture for you to cherish your memory of that special place.”
Z’Anne’s passionate goal as an artist is to honour the ideas of transparency and exactness, whether painting in watercolour or in oil. To achieve depth and glow in her work, she has recently been working in the Renaissance technique of multiple glazes, her subject matter ranging from portraiture to complex depictions of water and forest. Our Saugeen Watershed is a constant source of inspiration.
Whatever the subject, the perennial challenge is that of creating a unified and “painterly” canvas, while giving each important element its due. Hard work, but joyful, like the company of other artists.
