Ann Dunbar; port:+33(0)6111219

Ann Dunbar is an award-winning artist whose style is both classical and romantic with essences of impressionism executed in a contemporary way.The landscapes,seascapes and imaginative compositions, inspired by her voyages abroad, are soulful and serene. You find yourself transported into a world of flickering lights on an abundance of silken textural stitchery. The scene shimmers and spring to life.

From a young age, Ann was dedicated to her artistic pursuits, with support and encouragement of both parents and teachers, her talents blossomed.

She went to attend formal art training in the U.K., both for a teacher's diploma and a degree with honours.

Whilst teaching, Ann began experimenting with mixed media and after so many years of research, she developed a remarkable technique, finding her signature of marrying her paintings with embroidery.

Her passion for this magical combination is still evident in her work today. Ann's paintings are in many private collections world-wide. Most recently Ann was awarded the "Gold Palm of art award in Monaco from ArtExpo Gallery, Italy and a gold medal from Artcomexpo International at the Brazilian Embassy in Oslo, Norway. She is currently working for the "Nadelwelt" exhibition to be held in Karlsruhe, Germany, as a guest exhibitor from May 5th -7th. 2017.
