Annie Lovelass is an artist based in Purbeck
“My passion is painting the sea and landscapes from around Purbeck and Dorset’s Jurassic coastline and my native West Wales. I use acrylics/mixed media on canvas to try and capture the mood and movement of the water. I also love portraiture – especially old faces- to try and capture their life in paint is always a challenge.
I am always excited about starting a new work, a bit scared as well… that blank white canvas is a bit like starting a journey without being sure that all the directions are right! Colour, light and shape play an important part in my journey across the canvas. I always hope that the finished work will add those dimensions to a space or room and generate an emotional smile in response. I have always believed that art should add a little joy to life and if mine achieves that… then I’m happy.”
