Ann Bridges

Painter Printmaker

Formerly based in Ruthin in North Wales Ann is currently living and working near Sevenoaks in Kent.

From 1995-1999 she studied Illustration at Yale College (Coleg Cambria) and the North Wales College of Art and Design (Glyndwr University). She graduated with First Class Honours in Design.

A two year placement at Chester Zoological Gardens as Artist in Residence provided her with her first studio and the opportunity to develop and broaden her practice.

She has been awarded Arts Council funding for research projects carried out through visual diaries and sketchbooks.

Observational drawing is the starting point for Ann’s stencil-based paintings and original prints. Her images combine an eye for detail with an imaginative interpretation.

Paintings and original prints are exhibited locally and internationally. Works are also available to purchase directly from Ann's studio.

The studio is open by appointment and visitors are warmly welcomed to an Open Studios event held annually in June.

Ann's work is represented in North Wales by Ffin y Parc Gallery in Llanrwst www.welshart.net 

She is a member of the Royal Cambrian Academy.
