Anne Swankie was born in London and has lived there most of her life. She currently lives and works in Richmond but travels widely to seek inspiration.
Her works have sold to collectors around the world. These range from private individuals to commercial collections and historic buildings and private clubs. She has won several awards and has featured in The Artist magazine.
She says “I have always been fascinated by people in everyday situations going about their daily lives. I like to observe people unselfconsciously interacting with each other, perhaps having a drink or a meal or just walking along the street. My obsession with umbrellas shows no sign of abating. There is something about the shape which works well in a composition and I enjoy the way that watery reflections pick up light on the pavement. Whenever it rains, I dash out with my camera – I get quite anxious if there is a long dry spell!”
Anne is represented by John Iddon Fine Art.
