Welcome to Anne Christie Studio

ANNE CHRISTIE was born in St Andrews, Scotland, to a Swedish mother and Scottish father. Educated in Edinburgh, she was London based for many years, but is now lucky enough to be able to spend much of the year in St Monans, a fishing village in the East Neuk of Fife, where she regularly exhibits with E.N.O.S. (East Neuk Open Studios).

She studied Drawing and Painting at Edinburgh College of Art and has constantly been self-employed as an artist and writer since obtaining her degree. Her work has taken her to France, Scandinavia and India, and she has had many solo exhibitions in Scotland (The Open Eye and Richard Demarco Galleries), Provence, Denmark and London ( Lyric Theatre, Hammersmith, Mermaid Theatre, Smith’s Gallery, The Gloucester Gallery). Her paintings and portraits hang in many private and public collections all over the world.

Anne is a member of the Art Workers Guild (Bloomsbury, London) and last year received a Fife Arts and Crafts grant for her jewellery making.

For almost ten years she travelled regularly to Provence, where she tutored painting and writing workshops at Arts in Provence near Avignon; and after that for several summers she was an artist in residence in Denmark at the Kirsten Kjaer Museum in Jutland. Her work has been televised several times and she has painted numerous portraits; in Denmark, besides producing several family and double portraits, she also fulfilled a commission to do a large painting for a cultural centre at Fröstrup.

Much of her present work is inspired by where she lives, and she uses beach findings to make her boxed pieces. For her designer jewellery she uses beach findings plus semi-precious stones and silver fixings to create the highly original necklaces she calls sea strings.

ANNE CHRISTIE has also published six novels - all with Piatkus Books. She has co-tutored writing courses several times at the Arvon Foundation in Devon, and has also led creative writing workshops at Meerhay Manor, in Dorset and Arts in Provence.

(Novel titles: My Secret Gorilla, First Act, A Time to Weep, An Honest Woman, Growing Wings, Love on the Rocks).
