Here are some testimonials of Anne Corless’ work:

 

Art Workshop Tutor.  September 2015.
Derwent Pencil Museum, Keswick, Cumbria.
“The amazing Anne Corless Artist & Illustrator has been with us for the last two days giving demonstrations on the different pencil techniques. Here is Anne in action today with a few friends and visitors of the museum. With all demonstrations and workshops full we cannot wait until we have Anne back with us next time.”

 

Equine Art.
Icelandic Horse Commission. June 2015.
“Last summer I commissioned Anne to do a couple of portraits of my Icelandic horse, looking at his best, in his summer coat. These were for my Christmas and birthday presents, which are one day apart!! Anne visited the stables and spent well over an hour taking photographs of my Icelandic horse from every angle, both posing and some with him in motion.  Then came the hard part. Choosing which photos I wished to use for her artwork!!! My husband and I spent ages trying to decide which of the 45 photos were our favourites. Anne patiently waited for our decision. The result was I have a stunning watercolour picture of Leikur showing his beautiful colour, together with an amazing black and white picture in pencil and charcoal, of his head and shoulders. These are now away being framed before hanging proudly in our lounge. I am so pleased that I picked up Anne’s business card when I saw her at the Mounted Police Demonstration a couple of years ago. I found Anne pleasant and helpful all the way through and feel I can safely recommend her should you wish to book a commission.”

Medical Illustration.
Commission for European Association for Cardio-Thoracic Surgery. March 2015.
Anne Corless writes;  “Thank you to Dr Martin Czerny of the European Association for Cardio-Thoracic Surgery for this lovely testimonial, regarding artwork I was commissioned to create for an article in the European Journal of Cardio Thoracic Surgery“:
“The collaboration with Anne was pragmatic and fruitful so that we achieved our common aim in a short period of time being providing sophisticated artwork for a scientific article or better a position paper of the European Association for Cardio-thoracic Surgery. Position papers are means to transport the official opinion of a scientific society to physicians who want to learn e.g. upon a new surgical technique. Words may not cover all details to explain pathologies as well as treatment strategies to the community and sophisticated artwork is needed. Thereby, Anne substantially helped to distribute the message regarding a new surgical technique among physicians around the world who are now additionally supported by a thorough and perceptive visual means of learning.”

Medical Illustration.
Guest Lecturer at the 
Queen Mary and Barts and the London Neuroscience Society (QMBL Neuroscience Society), London. February 2015
This interactive workshop was entitled ‘The Art of Medical Illustration’.  Working from anatomical models students learnt how to do measured drawing; working with line, tone and colour.  Anne writes; “Great fun and some superb results!  Thank you to the QMBL NeuroScience Society for this lovely testimonial”

‘We thoroughly enjoyed having Anne Corless run a tailor-made workshop for us. She was able to convey her expertise to a group of university students with various backgrounds and levels of experience; teaching in small groups and then working on a one-to-one basis. Anne was very helpful with the planning of the event, advising us on what materials to purchase and had taken the time to prepare a presentation to guide the session and ensure all objectives were achieved. The students, guided by Anne, used specimens from the anatomy lab as reference to create accurate anatomical drawings of the head and neck and used a multitude of techniques to achieve this.  By the end of the session, it was clear that all participants had gained something of value, be that becoming more confident in their art skills or simply appreciating the complexity and efforts that go into the illustrations found in textbooks.”

“I first approached Anne Corless with regards to a donation for my charity event in aid of the Ol Pejeta Conservancy and without hesitation she gave up her time, advice and donated two wonderful paintings. ‘Hope and Mount Kenya’ Anne created especially for us from photo’s provided- Hope being a tiny orphaned Rhino very close to the heart of everyone at Ol Pejeta. What a truly breath-taking job she did – we are all delighted with the finished painting – Anne is a wonderfully talented artist, a true talent and a dedicated conservation supporter who has been so incredibly helpful, supportive and generous to us throughout the planning of our auction.”

Art Workshops and Design work in partnership with BBC Radio Merseyside ‘Up for Arts Project: The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre is ‘Up for Arts!’
November/ December 2012.
Local people create bespoke artwork for mobile cancer treatment unit“Workshops for the project were run by Artist and Designer Anne Corless, from Lytham St Anne’s, in association with Voluntary Arts England. Members of the public attended three workshops before creating artwork of favourite scenes throughout Cheshire and Merseyside, inspired by local landmarks.   The artwork was incorporated into two large friezes by Anne; showcasing the numerous drawings, sketches and paintings and installed in the new mobile unit to be enjoyed by patients and staff.  Up for Arts is an exciting country-wide project which aims to get people involved in the arts and crafts and increase community engagement. It harnesses the power of speech-based radio to raise the profile of volunteering and inspire people to get creative in their area.  Anne said, “I feel very privileged to have been involved in this project and to have met all the workshop attendees. They all worked so hard to put something in to this and every one of them has a reason for wanting to be part of it.  It really is very special.”  The mobile unit is part of the ‘Clatterbridge in the Community’ project which aims to bring chemotherapy treatments closer to patients’ homes in Cheshire and Merseyside – reducing unnecessary stress from travel and helping to help cut down waiting times. The unit includes six treatment bays, a staff and preparation area, reception and toilet facilities.  Kim Barrow, Head of Chemotherapy at the Centre said: “Since we launched the project we have delivered over 300 treatments. The unit enables us to deliver chemotherapy out of hospital in a calm and tranquil setting and the artwork has really enhanced the environment. This has been a great opportunity for the artists to see their finished work and see for themselves what it means to our patients.”
