Anne Skinner’s work is concerned with the fragments of memories and images which remain in our minds, long after the experience has passed. Half remembered – Half forgotten.
Anne aims to evoke a sense of time or place through her practice and is inspired by a variety of themes, including the beautiful city of Venice, or more recently, the ever changing natural environment of Scotland.
Anne develops her ideas from observation and interprets them using a variety of methods and disciplines. Her aim is to capture the essence of the subject or capture a fleeting moment in time.
