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 but most of all I am inspired by the East Neuk and its colours.
I work in a variety of media - oils, acrylics and gouache and mixed media. I also enjoy pencil drawing. 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 and I am happy to accept commissions. Some paintings are framed whilst others are in mounts - details can be seen in the gallery sections. 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 at my studio in Anstruther or they can be posted to you (postage and packaging is included in the quoted prices but will be deducted if paintings or drawings are collected when they can be paid for by cash or contactless payment. International orders may occur higher postage costs).. Mounts can be changed or resized and frames can be added or removed. Since all exhibitions have been cancelled this year please feel free to contact me if you are interested in any paintings or drawings. Purchases can be returned if you are not happy with my work
