Painter

Annik McKenzie born in France, lived in Canada, New York City and now in the UK. Her passion for colour was inspired by a visit to Musee Jeu de Paume in Paris when she was very young. It is where she discovered the works of Paul Cezanne, Vincent Van Gogh, Monet, Matisse, Derain and many other colour masters. She started to paint later in life when she met the right teacher in 1994 and has never looked back.

Annick's sense of colour is intuitive and describes her work as being an emotional ‘coup de coeur’ to places and an expression of feeling. It is all about the energy and the wonder of life and through her work she aims to communicate its essence. Working from sketches drawn en ‘plein air’ and taking photographs to help her recreate the magic feeling of the moment when back in her studio. Through her work she hopes to convey to the viewer vibrant and inspiring paintings in acrylics on canvas, wood panels and open edition giclee prints on paper and canvas.

"Painting gives me a way to inspire and touch people's lives, that is why I paint"!

Annick is a member of the Buckinghamshire Art Society.
