Every day during Advent 2015 we’ll feature a different South West artist. We’ve framed, printed or exhibited the artists featured in Advent Artists.
23rd December: Annette Burkitt
Annette Burkitt paints with water-soluble paints onto high quality paper. Her distinctive colourful style draws on various points of inspiration, including Kandinsky, the late 19th Century Nabis, and musical scores. She works both direct en-plein air, painting at the scene she is depicting, and also from sketches and photographs. Annette’s work has been exhibited widely, including at the RWA, Frome, Bruton, Sherborne, Wells, Devizes, Victoria Gallery in Bath and the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours at Mall Galleries, London. Her work has been selected for acclaimed competitions, such as the Royal Academy Summer Show.
Simon first came across Annette Burkitt’s work when a client came into our Gillingham workshop having bought two of Annette’s paintings and wanting them framed. Since then we have met the artist herself and very much enjoyed framing her work.
