Anne Toase  Artist

Coastal gallery

Welcome to my website. I hope you enjoy browsing this selection of my work.


My work has been greatly influenced by my mentor and friend Fred Sinkinson (1922 - 2009). He was an inspiring teacher, exploring beyond what is seen, encouraging true observation and always an authentic personal response to our subject.  Fred had a classical art education in Paris after WW2 at the Ecole des Beaux Arts and his legacy has certainly been passed down from the hands and eyes of his tutors to his own students.  He is much missed.


Each subject has many interpretations and I return to them again and again.  Particularly the ever changing birches which grow so abundantly in the forest close to where I live. A recent move, returning to the Isle of Wight has found me watching the ever changing light on water and huge skies which are part of island life.  It is an ongoing exploration and love affair with the beautiful world around us, the paintings are allowed to paint themselves.


Please feel free to get in touch if you would like more information about the paintings or the way I work. My details are on the contact page.


Thank you for visiting.
