Ann Blockley is a watercolour and mixed-media artist with an individual style developed over a lifetime of professional painting. Her pictures are evocative, atmospheric, and intuitive capturing an elusive air of mystery and magic within Nature that lies tantalisingly between reality and the imagined. Her practice embraces a range of materials and techniques chosen to express the unique interpretations of nature that are her signature themes. Ann has written numerous books on her painting methods, including her most recent book ‘Poetic Woods’ published by Batsford in September 2023.
She is a member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolour (RI) and the Society of Women artists (SWA). She is also a member of The Arborealists, a diverse group of artists who value trees and a connection with nature.
