About "African Patterns 02"
Since arriving in Africa I have been fascinated with the variety of vibrantly colourful patterns Every tribe has there own styles and colours in beadwork,fabric and even house decoration. I love combining strong colours and watching the patterns develope as I work on the painting. The painting was photographed after varnishing causing the black areas, in particular the head to look paler than it is.

Born and educated in Glasgow, Scotland, Anne Lee studied drawing and oil painting at Glasgow School of Art.
Her interest in water-colour painting began in South Africa, where she studied and developed her technique mainly in landscape.
Following several trips to Kenya she began working in soft pastel inspired by the beautiful intricate beadwork and colourful dress of the Maasai.
A commission from Oxford University Press to provide illustrations of African children in school situations, for use in school readers and text books, was published in several African languages.
Recently she has begun painting in acrylic on canvas using texture and the colours found in nature to produce semi-abstract panels.
In 1993 she joined the South African Society of Artists and became a Council member in 1994 and was voted into the office of President for two years from 1998 to 1999. She was invited to be one of the judges for the Western Cape Watercolour Group[0x1]s Annual exhibition, held in 1999.
She is also a partner of the Original Cape Art Group, formed in 1998
