Annee Kelly 

Annee is passionate about her art and although she has painted in oils , gouache, pastels and acrylics her favourite medium remains watercolour.

 

Her works are exhibited in renowned galleries across Victoria and her sought after paintings are found in corporate and private collections, both within Australia and overseas

 

A graduate in Arts from Monash University and a qualified secondary school teacher, Annee has been teaching watercolour since 1992.  She also conducts demonstrations and workshops at various Art Groups and Societies throughout Victoria and New South Wales.

Annee travels extensively, both within Australia and across Europe, painting on location, drawing her inspiration from the different locations.


She has been exhibiting her work since 1986, and has held ten solo exhibitions including a number of European exhibitions, since that time.  


Annee also conducts painting workshops annually in Europe, stating that "Painting is an integral part of my life and a wonderful journey which has allowed me to see so many beautiful places and meet with amazing people, whilst broadening my artists knowledge by the countless visits to renowned galleries in addition to those lessor known galleries.  The capricious and fluid nature of water colour remains my preferred mode of expression"
