“I am mostly self taught, but enjoy taking workshops with other artists to learn and continue growing as an artist and teacher. This past year, my paintings incorporated watercolours with water-soluble pens, batik and using rice paper in replacement of watercolour paper. This new approach allowed me to grow as an artist and discover new ways to display my art. My Hanover Art Studio provides a great atmosphere to teach workshops.
My paintings are on exhibit and sale in local business establishments in the Hanover and Walkerton area. Private commissions always welcome!”
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.
