Style: Anne’s body of work reflects an extensive background of painting including Oil renderings of classic subjects in the impressionist style. She also paints contemporary abstraction; a distillation of familiar subjects painted with energy and emotion. Her lifelong love and fascination with color and light is evident. She believes that classic subjects and the abstract expression of them can co-exist.

​​​​​​​​​​Her work can be found in both corporate and private collections in many states. She has participated in many juried shows and won several awards.
Professional artist Anne McNally, has recently moved to Asheville from Norfolk, Virginia and has joined the SVFAL with a great deal of enthusiasm for the wonderful art and the warm, friendly atmosphere she has enjoyed here.
