Anne Gilroy lives in a small house in the large landscape of north central Florida. From the coastal marsh to the pecan groves, lakes, live oak trees, sandhill cranes and summer storms inland, the landscape of the region is reflected in much of her work.
She paints with oil on stretched linen, and frequently works in a square format. All painting is done from direct observation; landscapes, from the smallest to the largest, are painted on site, or "en plein air." Both portraits and still life are painted in the studio, with either a sitter or a still life setup.
