Anne Farrall-Doyle

Anne Farrall-Doyle

I was born in Cheshire, England. Later studying at Stockport College of Art, following which I spent an informative period in a Manchester advertising agency. Eventually I took the plunge and entered into the world as a freelance illustrator. I acquired a high profile London agent and gained a continuing reputation as a Fashion Illustrator, although I continued to work on a wide variety of subject matters and gained clients both national and international. A love of travel and varied experiences took me to many countries in Europe and North Africa. I worked and settled in Spain, France, Munich and Ireland.

My inspiration can come from the transience of nature or the intriguing social exchanges.
The impact of light falling and changing becoming intertwined with complex shadows and reflections gaining always a graphic perfection. My subject matter ranges from my surrounding earthscapes, people, still life, nature and animals. A visual excitement can be sparked by a knarled knot in a tree, gracefully limp grasses waving in a breeze, shimmering reflections in the field puddles. I so love to drift between cafes and streets capturing moments of happiness, loneliness and interaction. But always the deciding factor is the perfect balancing of colours and shapes, always the aim is just too far.

My working world is necessarily a solitary one albeit I have my faithful four legged companions; sometimes their paws plant their own imprint on the day's work After a morning's sketch, planning and sourcing material helped on by many cups of tea, the moment arrives when I feel the need to work, quickly, to allow my canvas to open up and join me in a mind's picture My chosen medium is primarily oils although all mediums can be used to achieve my mind's vision. Eventually when all is working well I begin to work on another level of intuition. I am now trusting my own inspirations. This is the joy and pain of painting.
