Ross, Ann

Elected to RSW 1999

Artists Statement

My recent work has involved three things the process of watercolour painting;
the interpretation of memory; the language of colour and mark.
I paint memories of atmosphere, form, colour and place using the special qualities of watercolour and gouache.
