My art evolves from a strong connection to the earth, the rhythms of the oceans, the beauty of the Australian landscape and my own imaginings.
My childhood days unfolded in the West Australian country seaside town of Albany. My dad drew with my sister and me and took us on drawing trips on the weekend and out collecting beetles, insects and butterflies that we classified, set and displayed. I grew up listening to my mother's Don McLean and Cat Stephens homemade tapes and have vivid memories of the Vincent ode 'starry, starry night' drifting through our house.
I am a teacher, have been a principal and in the past run a bed and breakfast in the ancient mountains of the Porongurups. I've always loved to paint, draw and arrange momentary sculptures. My latest fascination involves paper cut art, maps, paper sculpture and the use of vintage books, vintage papers and characters in my work.
Anne Gee is an Australian artist based in Perth, Western Australia.
Her unique works have evolved from a deep love of the sea, maps, story-telling imagery and her own journeys and childhood memories.
Anne’s art pieces range from intricate, hand-crafted paper-cut works to ink pen maps, drawings, paintings and stunning, three-dimensional paper sculptures under glass. Many of her works feature vintage storybook characters and exquisite paper boats folded from the 80 year old, rescued pages from her vintage book collection.
