ANNE MADDOX

MARION, IN
Northern Chapter

Born and raised in the countryside of England, Anne learned to love and appreciate nature. Her parents were keen gardeners and nature lovers and as a family, weekend walks and picnics were a regular occurrence. A pressed flower project in her junior years at school taught her to identify and name a vast number of wildflowers, and as a senior, she learned how to do botanical renderings as part of her art curriculum.
After leaving school she attended both art school and teacher training college and after completing her first year as a teacher she applied to teach abroad, briefly in Nigeria then the Bahamas where she eventually left teaching to paint full time.
She enjoyed a very successful career as an artist, painting local scenes, but realizing the need for a book on the local wildflowers, she set out to illustrate and write one. Having completed over 200 illustrations she relocated to Florida to find a publisher. While in Florida she was commissioned to paint orchids at a local orchid house, and taught botanical rendering at Botanical Gardens, first in Florida and then in Tennessee.
It was in Tennessee she began painting Ecosystems before relocating to Indiana where they won awards in three Indiana gallery shows, including Minnetrista. As a resident of Marion, she has a studio/gallery, has taught watercolor classes, and recently took up Plein air painting in acrylics and oils.
Her interest in wildflowers and nature continues, she is a member of the Grant County Audubon Club, an avid watcher of Nature programs on PBS, and the creator of a Facebook page, ‘Wild About Marion’ encouraging citizens to create backyard habitats and pollinator gardens. She enjoys all the cultural events a city can provide but will always choose to live close to nature which nurtures and feeds her soul.
