Annie Williams RWS, RE, RBA
Annie Williams was born in 1942
in London but grew up in Wales. Her father was the artist Ivor Williams. She
trained and worked as a nurse before studying art at City and Guilds from 1966
to 1969. Her later work has been almost entirely still-life. She enjoys playing
with shapes, pattern and colour, mixing the familiar with some abstraction, and
precision with suggestion. Her foregrounds are a few simple objects, usually
pots, and backgrounds are created from textiles or old newspaper cuttings, and
even some unfinished paintings as a starting point
She has had one-woman shows at the Baker Tilly Gallery, Grape Lane Gallery
University of Warwick. Awards
include a travel scholarship to Florence,
The Artist Magazine Award at
the Mall Galleries, and various awards from the RWS open exhibition
Century Watercolour. Annie is a Member of the Royal Watercolour Society and
a senior fellow of the Royal Society of Painter/Printmakers. She has regularly
exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.
2009 Annie won the 2009 Turner Watercolour Award.
In 2013, her exhibition "Still Life: Prints and Watercolours" was
held at the University of Aberystwyth.
