In tune with the natural world, Annie Grant paints with a delicate botanical style capturing the translucency and luminosity of the local flora and fauna.
Annie has exhibited with the Aberdeen Artist Society, Dunkeld Cathedral, NEOS and several artisan fairs. Last year she painted an ‘Oor Wullie’ public art sculpture, raising over fourteen thousand pounds for the Aberdeen childrens hospital charity The Archie Foundation.
This year Annie is looking forward to painting in Pitmedden Gardens and will also be studying Botanical Illustration with the Royal Botanic Garden in Edinburgh.
Annie lives in a small village called Belhelvie in the North East of Scotland with her husband Steve, daughter Zoë, cat Kayo and a rather energetic Springer Spaniel called Miley. As a child on a Summer holiday to Inverness, her father gave her some paper and a small box of paints. She painted some bright pink geraniums which went on to win a few local art competitions and encouraged her to sell a few small pieces of her work.
Annie predominantly uses watercolours, acrylics, pencils and ink to paint a variety of subjects including plants, animals and landscapes. A natural artistic talent who enjoys many styles, has bounds of enthusiasm and imagination.
