Ann Wegmuller RSW RWS
Born In Gourock in1941 Ann was educated in Scotland. After living in Switzerland from 1961 to1971 she returned to Scotland where in 1985 Anne graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art. Now living in rural Perthshire Ann enjoys walking in the landscape and observing the colours changing with the weather and abstracts these experiences into her painting.
"Colour is very important to me. It is probably the subject of my paintings. The painting itself starts from my feeling for a place and the colour is the mood. It is like music: different sounds are like different colours.
Each colour has its own beauty and strength but can be enhanced or toned down by another colour. The excitement for me comes from doing the unexpected with this.
To put down a loaded brush of cadmium red, then sharpen it with shapes of pale magenta, or paint some cool dark yellow and put beside it some warm pale blue instead of the other way round."
