[11] Annie Ovenden

Annie Ovenden is a British fine artist and a founder member of the Brotherhood of Ruralists. The Brotherhood of  Ruralists was formed in 1975 and consisted originally of seven artists; Each had their own style, yet shared many sentiments and sources of inspiration. A desire to understand and paint the elements of nature was combined with literary and musical influences. She is a figurative artist.

She is best known for her tree studies and paintings depicting the landscape of Cornwall where she lives and works.
Ovenden’s paintings have a Romantic rural theme, for example, painting portraits of inhabitants of a small Cornwall village. She has had solo exhibitions in Ludlow (1990) and Liskeard (2001)
Her landscapes capture the true essence of a British countryside scene.  Her tree studies particularly striking, the way the branches reach out and make the tree into more of a profound and central shape as a whole.
