Ann Fraser

‘Beauty is Truth, Truth is Beauty’

Rosemary Verey once wrote ‘Ann’s paintings of flowers are so life like they could be transplanted back into her garden’. Every plant that she paints has been nurtured in the one acre garden at Shepherd House, Inveresk, seven miles east of Edinburgh. Tulips, irises, hellebores and poppies are her special favourites but she also paints mixtures of plants or vegetables either in groups of the same species or similar colours. Her compositions are striking and intensely observed.

Ann studied drawing and painting as a mature student at Edinburgh College of Art and then did a course in Botanical painting at The Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh. She had her first solo Exhibition in London in 1991 and since then has exhibited widely in London and Edinburgh, including at the Royal Horticultural Society, London, where she was awarded a Silver and a Silver Gilt Medal. She is represented in many private collections in the U.K and U.S. Her work ‘The Black Border’ features in The Shirley Sherwood Collection, “Contemporary Botanical Artists” and has been exhibited round the world, most recently at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington.
