ANNIE ROUSE B.A.Hons.
(B.A.Hons Central St.Martins, fine art painting)

My paintings deal with ethereal moments and passing time. Like fractions of a poem. Informed by bits of life, journeys made, stories told, notes in sketchbooks, scratches on walls, and old songs.
In my work I am concentrating on those abstract moments between place and memory. I am interested in how the finger of time leaves its mark.

I love drawing and most paintings begin with the drawing. I love textur and use the viscosity of oil paint to sculpt the forms onto the canvas.

I am full time artist and work daily from my studio in SW London. I have exhibited work in Britain and abroad, including many times at The Royal Academy Summer exhibition and the Mall Galleries London.
