I bought a beautiful framed otter print a couple of years ago as a present for my partner, which we both love and makes me smile every time I walk past. Communication is excellent and quality of work and customer service matches this. More recently bought a smaller hare print with same experience. Highly recommended!
Just received my Rainbow Hare; very high quality print. I love Ann’s work & I’m sure I’ll be purchasing more in the future..!
So I purchased Windcheetah as a small print, it is adorable but it carried a message to me. That I can chase my dreams no matter what lies in my path.
This is what Ann’s art does! It speaks to you! The sheer joy of the work comes right through the page! This picture is next to my desk and reminds me that there is more to life and more to me!
Martin and I love Ann’s fantasy artworks. We love how realistic the animals look and the colours suit our rooms so well! Having a story about the pictures really helps with the fantasy, and it’s easy to imagine the places you have depicted.
We have paintings and mugs and just love Ann’s attention to detail and fun subjects. She’s such a talented lady and we hope to add to our collection in future.
I recently purchased 3 beautiful Ann Richmond prints for my home which we are very happy with. Our friends thought they looked lovely and I will definitely be buying more!
I keep the print near my bed, as it is where I too, end up ‘Lost in a Good Book’, reading long past my bedtime. I also drift off dreaming myself into Ann’s fantasy world which seems to grow and expand every week! I’d have all the pictures if my little narrowboat had the space.
Hello & thanks for stopping by. I want to tell you something about the way I work and what drives me to paint.
As a few long-standing collectors of mine already know, I started my practice as a wildlife sculptor and worked for over twenty years as a commercial artist… But when that came to an end, I instinctively turned to painting. The step-away from 3D work proved a steep learning curve, but I think I’m getting there!
Turns out that the same approach used when sculpting original subjects also applies to painting them: as a Fine Artist, I try to capture something of an animal’s ‘soul’, rather than producing something copied from a photograph. To that end, I research each new subject extensively, aiming to find the look that best encapsulates the inspiration – or emotion – that I’m looking for.
As a result, I produce work that looks different to what you might be used to, but which stays true to my principles & vision. Remember:
There’s nothing fake, in how a painting can make you feel…
Renowned painter of Magic Realism (and, occasionally, Wildlife subjects) Ann Richmond is based in Wiltshire, Southern England. We ship Fine-Art Prints, Gift Items & Original Works worldwide from our online store. Ann also considers select commissions & bespoke orders.
