Annie McManus      


Annie has always loved drawing, it underpins everything she does, She also takes great pleasure in the colour, texture, versatility and expressiveness of paint and pastel, crayon and collage. All natural things are an inspiration, the human form, the impact of man on the landscape, still life, ugliness and awkwardness as much as beauty, maybe more so.

Annie took her first degree in English at Cambridge University, (her love of the written word means narrative is often an element in her work) then, later, did a Foundation course, followed by a degree in Fine Art at City College in Brighton and finally an MA in Drawing at Wimbledon School of Art.
