My name is Ann Marie Bone and I am a freelance artist with a passion for painting landscapes in vibrant colours, using oil paints, acrylic, watercolour and mixed media.
I graduated from Nottingham University in 1983 and now live in Dovedale, in the beautiful Peak District of Derbyshire, with my wonderful husband David, and we have five grown up children.
Each of my paintings is unique, and although inspired by the scenic area of the UK where I live, they often come from my imagination. People often say that the use of light and colour in my paintings create images of heaven and this has become quite a significant idea in my art. I was diagnosed with breast cancer at the end of 2014, and after surgery, have made a full recovery. My art is now even more important to me, as I realise how precious life is, and I think my paintings reflect this.
I know that paintings have the ability to evoke emotion in the viewer as well as the artist, and my special relationship with colour and light, is an important factor in making my images special and mood enhancing.
I often paint commissions based on dreams, ideas, photos etc. so feel free to contact me. if you would like to find out more information about creating a very special piece of art.
Prints of my paintings are for sale on Fine Art America: http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/ann-marie-bone.html
I paint in oils and acrylic on canvas, in a wide variety of sizes but I also paint in watercolours and do pencil drawings which are framed to order. If you are working to a budget, then please contact me so that I can give you information on the options available in your price range.
I am a keen member of the worldwide arts website Deviant Art which has over 14 million members. I find it an extremely friendly site and a good way of getting feedback on my art. People can add images to their personal collections and become a Watcher of a particular artist. My landscapes are usually among the most popular for the month under the Landscape category of Traditional Painting and the site gives me a lot of motivation to paint.
