Ann Winder-Boyle’s distinctive and disarmingly playful compositions of her collaged hand-drawn ink illustrations, vintage book covers, beeswax, wire and driftwood, reference big topical social and economic issues such as homelessness and Brexit – clad in the guise of 1950s childhood innocence.
Ann Winder-Boyle is a well-established artist who works in mixed-media with collage to explore the themes of childhood, time and space.
Her works evoke personal memories, feelings and associations in the mind of the viewer, who is drawn into a strangely familiar place that can engender either a feeling of deep comfort or an inexplicable sense of unease…
The leading art critic, TV presenter and Sunday Telegraph columnist Andrew Graham Dixon said of her work: “Ann Winder-Boyle’s small-scale pictures always reward a second look – they have an intriguing edge of darkness about them.”
Winder-Boyle has been selected for the Royal Academy Summer Show for several years and has been a permanent exhibiting artist at the Porthminster Gallery since 2008.
Born in Ulverston, Cumbria in 1963, Ann returned to education as a mature student and gained a first in BA (Hons) Fine Art from Buckinghamshire Chilterns University College in 2006.
Ann lives and works as a full-time artist in Buckinghamshire.
She exhibits throughout the South of England, and her works are in many private and corporate collections in the UK and abroad.
