Freelance Writer

Here is the link to my latest article, on wildlife art, for Art + Framing Today, published by the Fine Art Trade Guild:

A Full Member of the Writers Guild Anne enjoys writing about art.  A recent article on wildlife art features in the June 2016 issue of Art and Framing Today, the award winning magazine of the Fine Art Trade Guild.  Anne is a contributor (Artist/Writer) to Leisure Painter Magazine and has worked as an art demonstrator for The Artist and Leisure Painter Magazines and for the Derwent Pencil Company (also at Patchings Art Festival).

Anne loves sharing her artistic skills and experiences and enjoys returning to favourite venues to teach each year.  As she always says: “We are all on this artistic journey together!”

Anne is honoured to be an Ambassador for Derwent Pencils and the “magical” Pencil Museum in the Lake District (UK) each year to give free demonstrations and to teach an art workshop on watercolour media and has demonstrated for Derwent at Patchings Art Festival.

Due to the recent devastating floods that sadly affected Derwent’s Pencil Museum, Anne is awaiting dates for returning as Artist in Residence later this year.


Anne is honoured to be an Ambassador for St Cuthberts Mill (UK).



As a Guest Lecturer for Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines Anne enjoys sharing her artistic skills and knowledgeteaching guests to improve their drawing and watercolour painting skills.  She finds that many guests are keen to learn how to document their experiences of the cruise using their own artwork, photographs and souvenirs, writing about and ‘illustrating’ their own experiences.  Creating a travel sketchbook or journal is often a very personal and a unique way of remembering a cruise.

Anne finds these trips away from the studio hugely inspiring, not only to experience new sights but often allowing her to visit remote areas to view wildlife such as a recent trip on a small boat to the Gjesvaerstappen Nature Reserve, off the coast near the North Cape in Norway, famous for the one million puffins that arrive each year.

Wildlife Artist & Conservationist

Taking part in exhibitions and selling artwork in support of wildlife conservation is an important part of Anne Corless’ life as an artist.  A percentage of all wildlife art sales go to favourite wildlife charities.

Anne was filmed painting ‘Cheetah Alert’ (above) using Jackson’s watercolour paints at Jacksons Art Supplies over two days and then interviewed for Jackson’s Art Supplies Blog.  Prints of ‘Cheetah Alert’ have been registered with ArtSure and are now available for sale at Anne’s Art Studio Shop.






Anne is proud to be a Founder Member, Inaugural Chair (from June 2009 to Oct 2013) and an Honorary Life Member of the Association of Animal Artists.  Anne presents the Inaugural Chairman’s Award to an AAA artist each year.  The Award is also kindly sponsored by Dr Sally Bulgin, Publisher of The Artist and Leisure Painter Magazines and by Rosemary & Co Artists Brushes.


Anne is honoured to be a Supporting Artist of the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation and sells original artwork and limited edition prints in the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation Galleryusing her artwork to help support wildlife conservation.

Anne is a member of Artists Against Extinction and has pledged a perc
entage of sales through the website to the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation.  

She was honoured to be invited to take part in the Ol Pejeta Conservancy Charity Art Auction in 2014, along with celebrities including the cast of Downton Abbey…..and continues to support Animals Saving Animals.

Anne is also a Signature Member of Artists For Conservation and is a past winner of a Conservation Artist of Month Award.  As part of her commitment to art of the natural world, Anne enjoys visiting ‘Nature in Art’ (seen here in 2015 with Director, Simon Trapnell) as Artist in Residence, where she can share her creative practice with others and enjoy talking about wildlife conservation.




A supporter of the Animal Art Fair Anne was thrilled to be invited to exhibit in 2011 at Fulham Palace in London, in aid of Tusk Trust and to be interviewed as part of the promotional video.


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.”
