Anne Songhurst Artist

Originally specializing in wartercolour and wildlife paintings it was not until the late nineties that Anne became particularly interested in the work of the great Dutch and Flemish Still Life Masters. She now works predominantly in this genre producing these beautiful, intensely rich, vibrant pieces.

“I am not seeking to achieve photo-realism. The single camera lens records its own version of reality; the image is captured in a moment, determined by shutter speed and focal length. My aim is to record what I see as accurately as I can, and also to convey an atmosphere of stillness, and a timeless quality that develops with many days or weeks of close observation.” - Anne SonghurstAnne has exhibited at the Wren Gallery, Burford, The Mall Galleries, London and the Royal Academy, London.
