Anne Davis combines acrylic painting with an engraving method to create contemporary
landscape and floral artwork. Each piece is carefully hand engraved on ClaybordTM
and painted with an overlay of transparent acrylics, creating layers of alternately painted and incised linework and color.
Her prior editorial work has appeared in magazines and publications in Seattle, Washington and her award winning landscape and floral pieces have exhibited at juried art festivals in the Bay Area.
Through the use of color, her scenes and subjects become alive and vibrant while the detailed line work brings an interesting complexity to the piece. The detailed engraving work is challenging and takes patience, but the end results are always rewarding. All originals are done on
Ampersand Claybord TM and are beautifully framed in natural wood frames without a need for glass covering.
Originally from Idaho, Anne graduated with a degree in English Literature from Gonzaga University, Spokane, Washington before deciding to pursue an art career. She then achieved a Bachelor of Fine Arts at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, Washington and a Master of Fine Arts
from the Academy of Art University,
San Francisco, California. Her prior artistic work includes experience in commercial and editorial illustration, computer arts, 3D modeling and animation, and graphic design. Anne Davis has lived and worked in Sausalito since 1996.
