Goolwa Beach SA
Ann Neagle is an abstract artist living in a beautiful beachside town called Goolwa Beach
Her paintings are intuitive, colourful and joyful. Maybe a bit on the quirky side.
Ann started her painting life later in life after giving up golf ten years ago. She has been painting seriously for the last eight years. Before retirement in Goolwa, Ann and her husband ran a fashion chain. She attributes this to her keen sense of colour, shape and pattern. Her paintings are abstract, with a touch of impressionism and quirkiness. The viewer gets a very real sense of fun and joy when viewing them.
She mainly paints on board as this give her freedom to scribble, gouge, sand, and paint countless layers of paint while playing, before the painting reveals what it has to say. There is no preconceived idea of the outcome. It happens when it happens, and it is for Ann to recognise. Her use of colours and shapes and marks are her own as is her style of painting.
