ANNE SKINNER is a Dundee based painter and printmaker. She is a graduate of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design where she studied Drawing and Painting under highly respected Scottish artists Alberto Morocco, Jack Knox and David McClure.
Anne paints from her studio in Dundee, overlooking the River Tay – often the inspiration for her work. Her printmaking is created at Dundee Contemporary Arts Print Studio.
Anne’s work explores the fragments of memory which remain in our mind long after the experience has gone. Half remembered — half forgotten. Her response to the stimulus is never a literal translation but an interpretation of the essence of the subject. The ever changing Scottish environment is a constant source of ideas whether woodland, coastal or riverside location.
As an established artist, Anne has shown with numerous galleries and societies including the RSW, RGI, RSA as well as various independent galleries in the UK and abroad. Her work is in the permanent collection at McManus galleries Dundee.
Recent exhibitions have included the RSW 2019 winter exhibition in Edinburgh where she was awarded the Alison Prosser Award and was favourably mentioned by art critic Duncan MacMillian in the Scotsman review of the exhibition.
In August 2019 she had a successful exhibition of her printmaking at the Dovecot Studios during the Edinburgh Festival. She was also awarded the Langside College Award at the annual RGI exhibition in 2009.
Anne is secretary and member of the Hospitalfield Alumni Society and is also a member VAS, SSA, Edge Textile Artists, and the printmaking group Print.room Dundee.
In 2022 Anne was elected a member of The Royal Scottish Society of Painters in Watercolour (RSW).
