Annemarie Oshelda was born in Vienna, Austria 8th December 1959.
January 1980 Annemarie came to London and life unfolded for her, which eventually, years later, led Annemarie to becoming a British Citizen.
Since her childhood Annemarie has developed her drawing abilities, but she has begun to use colour during her first years in London.
Annemarie studied 3 years Painting and Drawing, and Art Foundation at 'SIR JOHN CASS SCHOOL of ART', London,UK
In 2007 Annemarie attended a Workshop with Ken Paine at the London Mall Galleries, which has led her to explore portrait paintings.
During the early 1980s years, Annemarie mainly produced drawings, which she sold to collectors from all over the world in the heart of London outside Green Park.
After she left an unhappy marriage, Annemarie was able to focus on her creative roots again.
Annemarie’s earlier studies led her to explore the exciting possibilities of colour, different media and methods.
Painting in oils became her favourite medium.
For many years Annemarie used strong and dark colours in her paintings of a surreal nature, which often were a reflection of turbulent emotional moments, amongst her abstract and her figurative work.
After moving to the countryside in Hertfordshire, Annemarie met her second husband in 1996, George W Gill, who was also a talented artist.
George encouraged her artistic talent, and they became critics of each other’s work. As a result both their art work stretched and evolved.
Annemarie began to use more expressive and lighter colours, developing a painterly style, and her artwork became more figurative.
Annemarie has always loved wildlife and horses. When she had her own horse, she worked with horses for about ten years. This provided her with the insight and inspiration for many equestrian paintings.
Over the years her paintings have depicted a range of subject matter including marine aspects, horses, landscapes, people, wildlife, and inanimate objects.
Listening to music and playing the bass guitar or piano, often are the energy and inspiration to her art and an important part of her life.
Annemarie hopes to capture the movement, the spirit and the feeling of connection of the subject which inspires her, such as the magic of nature or of amazing man-made structures.
Ultimately she hopes that one can "Walk Into Her Paintings and Lose or Find Oneself".
Annemarie aims to express this by combining figurative elements and moving towards the abstract.
