Anne Asplin

Artist Statement
As an artist, I strive to capture the spirit of the beautiful places I've lived and explored, currently with a special emphasis on the Appalachian Mountains. With a focused use of watercolors and gouache, I draw inspiration from the mysterious allure and enduring beauty of the natural world. I have always found a sense of comfort and belonging in natural spaces. My aim is to capture this feeling of embrace, inviting viewers to immerse themselves in the enduring charm and deep
tranquility ingrained in these stunning landscapes. Through my art, I seek to evoke a sense of wonder and awe, inspiring viewers to reflect upon the intricate beauty that embraces our world.
