About Anne Havard
I was born and raised in Smithers, British Columbia. After finishing high-school there, I struggled to discover what I wanted to do with my life, returning five times to various educational institutions, acquiring too many years of "interdisciplinary" post-secondary education and training, before discovering the artist in myself, at the age of 30.
When I finally did realize that what I wanted to do was paint, in 1985, I took to it with a vengeance and went to live in the hamlet of Atlin, in northern B.C. for nine cold but rewarding winter months. Surrounded by wilderness and cold, I did nothing but paint - under the guidance of respected local artist, Dave Nehring, who taught me a great deal and fired my enthusiasm.
From there I returned to Smithers, determined to make art my career path - and have not looked back since. My inspiration comes mostly from the natural environment around me, and when I first started painting, my work was fairly realistic. As time passes, my work becomes more and more removed from realism as I play with color and composition. I try always to get mood and movement into my paintings, but also love exploring design, pattern and texture. Every time I start a work, something different captures my interest and challenges me. I never really know from one painting to the next what sort of image I'll want to create, and I try to let my intuition guide me.
I've been painting for over twenty-five years now; for two years running, my art was chosen to represent the Northwest Zone of British Columbia in 'Objects and Images', an annual province-wide juried art exhibition, first in Penticton, and then Prince George, B.C. I have had eight solo-exhibitions in the Smithers area, and exhibited my work all over Northwestern B.C, and in Vancouver, B.C., Waterton Park, Lethbridge and Canmore, Alberta.
I just recently moved to Gabriola Island, one of the 'Gulf Islands between Vancouver & Vancouver Island, and have my second 'Red Door Studio', where I continue to paint, constantly driven to create, using paper, color, composition, pattern, design, and texture.
