Ann Sutherland Gruchy   S.C.A.

Watercolour, Acrylic, Oil, Mixed Media


Ann, a visual artist with her studio in North Gower (Ottawa), works in acrylic, watercolour, printmaking, oil and alcohol ink.  She is known for her bold, large, three-dimensional mixed media art.  Her images have evolved into semi-abstract and abstract works, stressing design, texture, light and colour.

She also enjoys working in her first love, watercolour - allowing the natural transparency of the media to enhance light and atmosphere.

Ann regularly teaches basic watercolour classes, as well as Open Studio Workshops (any media) in her North Gower studio.  She is an elected member of the Society of Canadian Artists.  She also takes an active part in the Manotick Art Association, the GO FIGURE drawing group  and OMMA .

Her work is shown regularly at THE GROTTO ARTWORKS, Merrickville, ON

She takes part in the MAA semi-annual shows, Art Lending of Ottawa, the Merrickville Studio Tour, OMMA exhibits as well as occasional solo shows.
