Collection: Scanlan, Anne

Anne Scanlan is an Ottawa-based artist and printmaker. Working in many different subjects, ranging from floral, figurative, street scenes and more, Anne brings a sense of simplicity, calmness of space and a touch of whimsy to all of her work. She focuses on reducing objects to simplified shapes and patterns to create an interesting and obscured perspective, as well as using colour and light to set a sense of mood. She often utilizes bits of patterned paper and fabric to create a tactile and playful element in her paintings.

Anne began painting in 1992 and more recently, graduated from the Ottawa School of Art, where she is now teaching.
