Miss Ann Fairchild
Ann Fairchild is a British artist who grew up painting the local landscape of rural Suffolk. She decided to specialise in Chinese painting as it places the importance of capturing the spirit of the subject above all other considerations. She uses traditional Chinese painting materials to depict a wide range of subjects including birds, animals, flowers, landscapes and people. She moved to Kent to study for a degree in Fine Art from Canterbury College of Art in the early 1980s and later went on to receive a Postgraduate Certificate in Education from Christ Church University College. She has taken part in many group exhibitions in London and around the country. She was Chairman of The London Chinese Brush Painters Group from 2004-2009. She has been teaching Chinese Painting to adults and children since 2006.
