About Anne de Groot

I am a Web Consultant at www.degrootdesign.com and Painter living in Toronto's Long Branch neighbourhood. I paint with acrylic on canvas. My subject matter is taken from my own photos in and around Long Branch, at a family camp on Lake Coucheching in Orillia, Ontario and a friend's cottage in the Kawarthas, Ontario.

I studied Fine Art at University of Toronto in the 90's and have a Degree in Art and Art history and specialist in Painting.

After a 20 year hiatus from painting, in November 2017 I did a 30-day painting challenge. I shared these paintings on social media; this image is the final painting from that challenge. It is based on a photo taken in winter of 2016 at the Figure 8 skating rink in Colonel Sam Smith Park, just south of Kipling and Lakeshore.

I enjoy walks with my dog Oreo, and skating and sailing with my two boys. My husband Simon is my biggest art supporter.
