Artists > Anne McCormack RI PVPSWA
After careers in commercial Graphic Design and teaching, Anne’s natural talents, combined with a desire for artistic freedom inevitably resulted in fine art painting becoming her now well established profession.
Her work has taken many directions in subject matter and at various times has moved across all mediums of oil, acrylics and mixed media, with watercolour always dominating. Subjects have also been ‘on the move’ with interior scenes featuring people in everyday situations becoming the subjects for which Anne has received most acclaim.
Anne was elected to the SWA (Society of Women Artists) in 1994 and served as Vice President for two years. In addition to being widely persued by many independent galleries throughout the country, her work has achieved much recognition by the major and celebrated art societies with work selected by the RI (Royal Institute of Watercolourists) RWS (Royal Watercolour Society) ROI (Royal Institute of Oil Painters) and the RA Summer Exhibition.
Further acknowledgement of Anne’s talent has come from various judging panels. Her paintings won ‘ Best painting in Show’ at the SWA (Alexander Gallery Award)
and following a 100% acceptance of submissions at the RI 2006 open exhibition, Anne achieved further glory by winning the award for ‘Best Figure Work’.
Anne was elected a member of the Royal Institute of Watercolourists
at the 2007 RI exhibition. Acclaim continued with another award –the John Blockley prize
for the Best Atmospheric Painting- at the 2009 RI exhibition.
