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, the Neponset Valley Artists, and the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod. 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 through the Copley Society of Art and was immediately hooked. Her work is currently represented by Custom Art Framing & Gallery 9 in Norwood as well as 13 Forest Gallery in Arlington. One of her paintings, Afternoon In The City, was selected by Dick Blick Art Materials to appear on the painting knives page of their 2010 Studio Catalog.
