“My focus has always been the human form, through both drawing and painting (portraiture, hands, figure). My current practice explores the balance between accuracy and recognition by depicting the human form using free mark-making to distort the edge between abstraction and realism. Portraiture (and self-portraiture) is a passion of mine, and through which I believe it possible to capture both spirit and mood, a sense of the person and our human connection.” — Anne Hoover
