Landscape is the usual focus of Ann Marie Whaley’s work, and when weather permits, she returns to her regular haunts, ie. Gunnersbury Park in London, and the south coast of England in Hampshire and Dorset.
When the weather is not so friendly, she spends time in the National Gallery where she can learn from such great landscape painters as Corot, Diebenkorn, Derain, Morandi and Macke.
“My goal is to depict a different space on the paper or canvas - a space that conveys some of what it feels like to be in that landscape not simply an image of what it looks like.”
“Although I have lived in London for many years, I grew up in the state of Arkansas in the US. Working in the English landscape is another way of claiming my adopted home as my own.
