Annie has two sculptural works in A Palette of Poetry. Both are responding to poems written during my Olveston residency. I’ve had one of Annie’s works lying on our dining room table for the last month and I’m going to miss it when it departs for the Community Gallery next Saturday.
Annie Lambourne’s formal training was at High Wycombe College of Art, in Buckinghamshire England. She took a hiatus of twenty one years to pursue a nursing career and raise a family. On emigrating to New Zealand she decided to return again to her artistic roots.
