Ann’s mission is to spread the joy of using graphite and coloured pencils believing they are easy to master, forgiving and accessible so that even a complete beginner can produce work of quality. Known for her fine detail, vibrant colours and strong contemporary style she constantly experiments with her chosen medium to achieve a more painterly effect and brighter colours. She teaches at her studio in Rowde and in many countries around the world and runs an online tuition programme. She is a Fellow of the Society of Botanical Artists and her popular book ‘Botanical Painting with Coloured Pencils’ is published by Harper Collins and available in the USA, South Korea and Russia. This year she will be exhibiting several new works and eight new limited edition prints plus new sets of recipe cards and giftware. You can view her work on her website or watch her work on Youtube or Vimeo under 'Ann Swan'
