Anne Whitfield grew up in rural North Carolina, then, moved to Beulah Colorado. Residing in a natural setting has always been of great importance. Most of her subject matter is suggested by her immediate surroundings.
After a career of teaching science, she chose to do what she really wanted. “Teaching was certainly worthwhile . . . and it taught ME a lot!! But, it wasn’t making art.”
Beginning first with photography and recording Native American rock art, she progressed to pastel painting.
“I love pastels. Their color intensity is breath-taking! “
Anne’s style has been described as mysterious, mystical, and soft-focused. She is especially sensitive to the emotional impact of color. The subject matter seems to tend toward landscapes,
trees in particular. Most often, “quietness” is the theme.
She has shown in a variety of venues, and has had 5 one-artist shows.
