Anne Moody
Anne Moody  is a celebrated Canadian artist and plant ecologist with the British Columbia provincial government. She has been drawing and painting since childhood and won her first award at a "Painting in the Parks Program" when she was nine.

"I consider myself a realist, strongly tempted by abstract elements wrapped in story. The images that speak to me are scenes that convey meaning beyond superficial beauty. My compulsion to paint takes charge when an image embedded in my memory will not allow me to rest until I promote it to canvas. My choice of medium, water-colour, acrylics or oil, is dictated by the nature of the image."
