To read about Anne Corless in the Creative Arts:
Anne’s medical illustrations feature on Wellcome Images (UK) and in the Medical Illustration Source Book (USA). Anne’s Illustration work can be seen on the Association of Illustrators (UK) and Directory of Illustration (USA).
Creating artwork of the natural world is something Anne is continually inspired to do. Anne says; “As a child I have stood on pristine beaches in Australia with no one else in site. In Kenya I have watched elephants crashing through the undergrowth in the magnificent Aberdare National Park. I have snorkelled in the Red Sea in Saudi Arabia, over a coral reef of magical shapes and colours with a drop into the ocean so deep and sudden at its edge that I was afraid to swim over it. It is all magnificent and all so fragile. I hope that by creating images of the natural world I may remind people of the importance of protecting it…..for all our sakes.”
As a writer Anne strives to describe the working practice of her art to share with others. Anne is a Full Member of the Writers Guild and a regular contributor (Artist/Writer) to Leisure Painter Magazine and an art demonstrator for The Artist and Leisure Painter Magazines.
Anne is honoured to be an Ambassador for Derwent Pencils and loves visiting the “magical” Pencil Museum in the Lake District (UK) each year to give free demonstrations and to teach an art workshop on watercolour media.
