I am an artist working in the East Neuk of Fife. I have an academic background in Art History, History and Psychology which I think influences my paintings.
I work in a variety of media - oils, acrylics and gouache and, very often, mixed media. I take inspiration from the area in which I live. The old harbours and buildings provide very colourful subjects. I also paint flowers from my gardens and from some of the lovely gardens around Scotland. My oil, acrylic and gouache paintings tend to be fairly representational although I like to paint large flowers and use warm, bright colours. I like to experiment with a variety of media, for instance, mixtures of ink and acrylics or oil pastels and acrylic. In some paintings I like to use a scraffiti technique.
I exhibit and sell my paintings at local exhibitions but I am happy to sell online and accept commissions. Some paintings are framed whilst others are in mounts. More details can be given if you contact me. Many of my paintings, past and present, are used for a variety of good quality products on Red Bubble (see Links - sometimes under the name AnnabellaHaggis!).
Paintings can be viewed, and purchased during East Neuk Open Studios at 11 Braehead road, Pittenweem, 22ng/23rd and 29th/30th June 2019 (http://www.eastneukopenstudios.org), the East Neuk Art Club Exhibition at the Town Hall in Pittenweem, 3rd - 11th August 2019 and my own venue at the Pittenweem Festival, 11 Braehead Rd, Pittenweem, KY10 2LX.
