Ann Gorbett paints exclusively with a palette knife to create her oil paintings because she loves the thick, painterly strokes of color she can create with it. Her work ranges in subject matter from city scenes to florals to figurative paintings based on nostalgic family photographs.
Ann is a Walpole resident, a member of the Foxboro Art Association, a signature member of the Neponset Valley Artists. She holds a fine art degree from Miami University of Ohio and has worked as a professional graphic designer in Boston for many years.
She began painting in oil again after taking a palette knife workshop and was immediately hooked. In addition to the Art Gallery at Patriot Place, her work is currently represented by The Red Inn in Provincetown and Custom Art Framing in Norwood.
Ann loves to do commission work so if you have a favorite pet, family photo, or special place you'd like her to paint, send her an email.
