Annette Studied watercolour at the Royal Art Society, Lavender Bay NSW

Annette specializes in watercolour and poetry. She views nature through a watercolour filter, inspired by nature’s soft edges, transparencies and subtle blends of colour. Annette’s aim is to find the delicate balance between freedom and control. The freedom to push the boundaries while maintaining control of her vision for each work. The challenge is to let the paper, paint, water and brush flow together producing works that are alive and fresh…….each one unique. Annette keeps her touch light on the paper endeavouring to say more with less paint and less detail. Frank Lloyd Wright once said that ‘space is the breath of art’ Kelsey’s desire is use this ‘space’ to bring a fresh perspective to a world that has forgotten how to be still.
