Anne Garden Studio

artist statement

My textile line is a series of unique images that I silk-screen onto linen and silk. Many of the images are wine-related or nature-inspired, drawing from my residence in the Napa Valley.

My painting in the last few years has taken me in two directions. I continue to love painting landscapes, animals and my abstracted versions of the aforementioned, but am also developing a series of multimedia works on paper and wood that have social and political content.


In all the work I do, there is a controlled vision, a simplifying of the subject to create a straightforward composition with immediate impact and accessibility. My aim is to make the painting, drawing or print lush through highly saturated color and vibrant light. In this meandering process we call creating, the imagination often leads me to blessed surprises wherein the painting/art magically coalesces.
