Anne Taylor is a predominantly self-taught New Zealand artist based in Greytown, Wairarapa, a rural region north of Wellington. She works mainly in 2D - painting, drawing and monoprints. Modernist art has been a longstanding interest which influences her work, along with history, art history and women artists.
I am a member of Wairarapa’s MainARTery open studio route (www.mainarterty.co.nz), and the NZ Academy of Fine Arts. I have exhibited my work in group exhibitions at Aratoi - Wairarapa Museum of Art & History; Expressions, Upper Hutt; and the NZ Academy of Fine Arts. My work is for sale at The Village Art Shop, Greytown.
Anne’s foray into using Resene was a little unusual - she was painting an old day bed and had agonised about the colours a lot, so was trying out some options with Resene testpots. She was working towards an exhibition at the time and liked the colours so much she decided to use them in her work.
Using the Resene testpots has opened up a new way of working. Anne can choose a 'family' of colours that speaks to her, feels right for the work, then mix more colours from within this family. This gives a unity and harmony from working with pre-selected colour 'schemes.' Working on an exhibition with a theme of op shops/second hand shops, Anne went through the Resene colour options and chose colours that conjured up op shops. Then it was easy to choose colours like Resene Camarone, Resene Padua, Resene Paris Daisy and Resene Niagara and others that evoked old furniture, textiles, ceramics etc.

A wide range of artists are using Resene paints in their work, on everything from interior paintings to tactile artworks and mural masterpieces.
