About ANNA COULSON
A self-taught artist, Anna Coulson, was born and raised in Wilmington, Delaware, in an area surrounded by artists such as Frolic Weymouth, Howard Pyle, and Andrew Wyeth. She grew an interest in art at an early age with an art plaque presented to her by Knights of Columbus in her formidable years. Since, she has developed her talent and has held shows in Rittenhouse Square, PA, Laguna Beach, CA, and Palm Beach, FL.
While living in Wilmington DE, she contributed artwork to Wilmington's annual Barefoot Ball at First USA plaza five years in a row in which each year the proceeds went toward benefiting K.I.D.D.S (Kids in Divorce, Death, and Separation). She has also been asked to take part in other benefits such as the MBNA Heismann Awards and the “Rudy Rubini Benefit” which supports music programs throughout various schools in the Delaware Valley.
After leaving Delaware, she spent three years in West Palm Beach, sharing studio space with Douglas Ferrin, a well known artist of Palm Beach, Florida. While busy working on commission pieces, her work could be seen on display in “Beyond Décor Fine Arts Gallery” on Royal Poinciana Way in Palm Beach for six months in 2006. In February 2007, new works will be shown again there. Recently, she was invited to participate in a show held by Terri Bomar for the benefit of “Young Adventurers” at Donald Trump's Mar-a-Largo estate in Palm Beach.
Over the years, Anna Coulson has produced different styles of painting, from impressionism and abstract, to realism in various mediums. Though she has mastered certain several styles of painting, a continuous element to her work is the use of subtle, muted, or earth toned colors.
Currently, she resides in Washington, DC and takes on commission based projects regularly.
