Ann Arscott – Painter
The wilderness — exploding with color, light, texture
OR, serene and inspiring
OR, maybe all of the above.
Add a large obsession with ‘things Oriental’ and a delight in expressing it in art.
What this all adds up to is Ann Arscott’s work in oil, pastel, watercolor, sumi-e and vividly colored Chinese brush painting.
A love of Chinese Painting led her to study at the China Institute in NYC.
She has been painting in the antique style on silk and a more contemporary style on paper.
These include the traditional flowers, animals and landscapes.
Her oils, pastels and watercolors take in a vast spectrum of the natural world…The Mountains, the Sea, the Canyons, the geological story in Rocks, the Ice, the Water, the Sky..
Ann’s work has appeared in, and won awards in, numerous shows in New York, New Jersey and Washington. A real treat was a show in Kyoto, Japan last summer.
Her paintings hang in many private collections throughout the USA.
