Bold, vivid colors characterize Anne Enochs’ pastel and oil paintings. She displays a masterful command of color, composition, and intuitive perception in her paintings. She loves to paint the quality of light, whether the subject matter be figurative or landscape or still life. Her travels, particularly to the Southwest U. S. and to Europe, have greatly influenced her work. Her subtly powerful paintings provide a continuous source of beauty and pleasure to their owners and viewers.
From early childhood, Anne dreamed of and focused on becoming an artist. A native Mississippian, Anne studied privately with several local artists before attending the University of Alabama where she earned a B. A. degree in art. She has continued her art study since graduation by attending art workshops throughout the country and also by coordinating fine art workshops for six years. Anne’s paintings have won awards in national juried shows and she has exhibited locally, nationally, and internationally.
A founding member of the Professional Artists League of Mississippi, Anne is also a member of the Degas Pastel Society.
While working as a fulltime professional artist, she also teaches classes in drawing, and painting and holds workshops. Anne has a two hour instructional video out called “Pastel Basics with Anne Enochs.”
