Anne grew up in a family home where she developed a taste for antiques. As a child she loved to paint and frame works of art. She studied communications and moved into media relations, but after ten years in her career she once again heard the call of art. She trained as a decorative painter and learned a variety of techniques (patina, trompe l'oeil ...). Anne became a self-employed craftsman and expressed her art on large scale projects (apartments, houses ...)
When she decided to close her business in order to raise her children, Anne began to express her expertise on canvas. It was a revelation for her. She started teaching painting to children and adults in her own studio, taught in a fine arts school, and in 2005 she began exhibiting her work.
By choosing to focus on her painting, Anne traded her brushes for knives to work with the thicknesses of malleable acrylic paint. She likes a mix of medium ; the combination of collage, prints, etching and layers of glaze create a warm and colourful atmosphere. She uses different medium (preparations to change the consistency of the paint) and techniques such as collage or image transfer, associated with a succession of layers of paint applied with a knife and then rubbed or scraped. Working the material this way she seeks to achieve an effect of "passing time."
Anne approaches various topics, often to mark a contradiction or an unusual situation. The theme of "inside / outside" industrial wastelands allows her to bring the past alive. She likes to represent what remains immobile, places haunted by the imprint of man. She combines these with the baroque, a rich and colourful world from long ago. Anne places the mark of time on everyday objects. She seeks to pass on this taste of history and patina through her paintings.
