Anne Gudrun

Anne Gudrun is a contemporary artist from North Vancouver and the creator of Essence Art™, a business dedicated to bringing the ‘Beauty of Art’ to the world through her original art and product designs.

From a young age Anne intuitively observed how lines, colours and shapes define the essence and personality of things. Whether creating the figurative representation of a person or the abstraction of a flower, she explores the interactions between the shapes and colours on canvas; each colour and shape becoming its own character and contributing to the work as a whole. Her paintings reflect the beauty of nature with bold vibrancy and an innate sense of design.

Anne's unique style provides an uplifting and colourful statement piece and her work has been chosen for public art displays, receiving awards and special recognition in select online and international art competitions. In 2012 she received the Don S. Williams Grant (FANS - Fund for the Arts on the North Shore), a cash award recognizing her artistic talent and accomplishments. Her painting 'Daisies' was chosen as part of a public art exhibition for the Harmony Arts Festival 2012.
