Anne Saunders

Each new painting is a challenge. The ongoing learning experience is what motivates Anne. As a self-taught painter she continues to discover new techniques and use of light and color. Her subject matter ranges from realistic historic buildings to more impressionistic gardens and landscapes. Her medium is acrylic on canvas. Trained as a classical singer Anne performed professionally and taught voice while raising her four children in northern California. Upon moving to the Sierras in 1985 she took up painting as a new creative outlet. The beautiful mountain landscape was her inspiration. She often uses photographs taken during excursions into the high country to trigger her imagination.

The Anne Saunders Gallery in Jamestown, California opened in the late 1980's. Anne represented several highly successful artists from the area. The gallery is still in operation under different ownership. Anne's paintings are in collections across the United States and in Europe. Her forest prints are featured at Calaveras Big Trees State Park. She is in the process of publishing a children’s book about the park.
