about the artist
Ann Morton grew up in Cowra, NSW. She commenced painting at the age of 9 and by 12 she was painting still life works for three separate galleries. Morton has since been accepted into prestigious awards such as the Archibald Portrait Prize, the Doug Moran Portrait Prize and the Portia Geach Portrait prize. Unmistakably one of the finest realist oil painters of her generation, her works are held in private and corporate collections around the world. Ann’s work has also been published in a number of national and international magazines and she has participated in numerous solo and joint exhibitions.
Although influenced and guided by several professional artists, Morton is mainly self-taught. Travelling overseas allowed her to refine her style through extensive study of the European Masters. Morton will spend weeks refining a painting, ensuring that each new work attains the high standard set by her.
