Annabel Gosling

Born at Overbury, Worcestershire, Annabel Gosling has been a full-time painter since the age of sixteen.  She studied at the Ipswich School of Art, The Byam Shaw School of Drawing and Painting and Angers Beaux Arts in France. She was awarded Scholarships by both the Leverhulme Foundation and the Byam Shaw.

Since the age of 20, when she first exhibited at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, she has had numerous London solo exhibitions at  West End galleries. She has also shown regularly with mixed exhibitons, including the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, the Royal Society of British Artists and the New English Art Club. She was awarded the Meynell Fenton Prize at the Discerning Eye.

Her commissions have included those from the Savoy Hotel, the Royal family of Abu Dhabi and a large fresco ceiling for Pavilion Opera.

In the course of her career she has journeyed extensively, travelling throughout India, Spain and the Mediterranean in search of the distinctive light that permeates all of her paintings. Her talent for capturing the essence of the atmosphere of a place is due in no small part to her habit of working on site, in front of the motif, an increasingly rare ability in the modern art market. She divides her working life between travel and her studio in Suffolk.

She will be having her next solo exhibition in London at Panter and Hall in October 2012.
