The Artist Says:


Color is the melody that plays throughout my work. Of all the characteristics you might find in my paintings, color is the most important to me because it’s the means by which I reveal my mood, my responses, or what I’m feeling at that moment in time. I love to work with a variety of subjects in a range of styles from impressionistic to abstract, and I thoroughly enjoy exploring different media and tools, but most of all I revel in experimenting with color. In nearly every piece, I strive to express a certain energy by exaggerating a color and letting it "sing" in the painting.

Color is the melody that plays throughout Anne Waters’ work. Of all the characteristics you might find in her paintings, color is the most important, she says, because it’s the means by which she reveals her mood, her responses, or what she’s feeling at that moment in time. “I love to work with a variety of subjects in a range of styles from impressionistic to abstract, and I thoroughly enjoy exploring different media and tools,” Anne adds, “but most of all I revel in experimenting with color.” In nearly every piece, she strives to express a certain energy by exaggerating a color to see if it "sings" in the painting.

Celebrating 15 years as an award-winning professional, Anne now has artwork included in countless private and corporate collections across the United States. Recently, several paintings were published in Beginning Color Mixing, a Walter & Foster publication by Kimberly Adams.
 
Over the years, Anne has developed a distinctive style, easily recognized due to her bold, expressive color and textural paint applications. From her studio in Parkland, Florida, Anne now creates landscapes, seascapes, florals and other paintings filled with energy and vitality. While living in the Seattle area, each summer she hosted an outdoor exhibition of [...]
