During my weekend at the Patchings Art Festival in June 2013 I managed to track down and interview Ann Blockley. Ann Blockley SWA is a renowned watercolour and mixed-media artist with an individual style developed over thirty years of professional painting.
Ann Blockley watercolours are evocative, atmospheric and intuitive and her longstanding passion has been for flowers and nature, which are inspired by the gardens and countryside close to her Cotswold studio. Ann has a worldwide reputation for flower painting but her landscapes and animals are also collector’s items. She has written seven books on her painting methods covering many subjects.
