Ann Shrager was born in London and studied at The Byam Shaw School of Painting, the International Summer Academy, Salzburg and the Royal Academy School under Peter Greenham (1967 1973).
She works in oil and watercolour taking inspiration from a wide spectrum of artistic movements. This is reflected in her treatment of her subject matter where her uncluttered approach deliberately allows the viewer to reach his or her own response to the moment captured. Whether she is painting misty scenes of rowers on the River Thames or vibrant sari clad villagers in Africa, her brushwork and use of colour creates a balance in which the work manages to be both spontaneous and lively whilst retaining sensitivity and simplicity.
Ann has been a member of the New English Art Club since 1975. She has won a number of awards and her work also hangs in many corporate and private collections including Mitsubishi and De Beers.
