Anne Toase Artist

After my foundation year at Croydon I went on to study three years at Hammersmith Art College, I have been teaching since 1975, starting with adult education classes at Newport, Isle of Wight.

As my personal style was developing, I worked mainly in watercolour and oil. Later I came to love the spontaneity of pure pigment working with pastel. More recently I returned to oil for its richness and subtle depth of colour. My work has become increasingly abstract, particularly working with watercolour on Gesso

Working from life was my first love and has been my enduring passion. I have been fortunate to have the opportunity to work with a great many talented life models over the years. I continue to spend time each week in the life study honing my drawing skills. This year I have been concentrating on portraiture as a personal challenge and am working on a series mainly of my family.

My work has been sold to collectors in the United Kingdom, Continental Europe and Asia.
