Abstract paper collages, and painted, quirky, funny birds

Anneli was born in Finland, the country which still influences her work.

She has developed her own form of ABSTRACT EXPRESSIONISM focusing on powerful colour, space, geometry, rhythm and scale. The nature of Finland provides never ending inspiration for her work. Some works are reduced to a series of horizontal lines that often represent the essential landscape elements of lakes, forests and sky.

Most of Anneli’s work is in paper collage form for which she prepares assorted
papers using layers of tonally blending paints and surface patterns. These provide the palette for the making of her pictures.

Anneli also has a portfolio of original funky, and wonderfully colourful bird pictures which should make everybody smile.

Her work is equally suitable as a finishing touch for residential or commercial interiors. All the original works are for sale and some prints and a selection of cards (images of originals) are also available.

Works can be purchased either framed or unframed. Panels do not require framing.

Since 1993 her work has been commissioned and sold to private collections nationally and internationally and a number of commercial organisations, including Wessex Water, Nokia, KPMG, Microsoft, Ramada Hotel Group, Center Parcs and Wetherspoons have purchased or hired her work.
