Sweet Pea is taken from these lovely perennial peas at my home in Helena and annuals I grow every summer. I love their fragrance and the fragility of the flowers. My Grandfather was a master sweet pea grower. I also fondly remember it as a term of endearment from someone I love very much. I had just finished seven paintings from the plants in my yard when I arrived at Wildwood. I am hoping that this love and beauty transfers itself into the image we made. I try to paint things that I love and then hopefully that transfers to the viewer.”



The Artist

Anne Appleby

Anne Appleby (b. 1954, Harrisburg, PA) studied at Philadelphia College of Art before relocating to Montana in 1971, subsequently earning her BFA at the University of Montana, Missoula, and eventually establishing a studio and residence in the sparsely populated community of Jefferson City. In addition to receiving her MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1989, Appleby’s educational background includes a fifteen-year apprenticeship with Ojibwa artist and holy man Ed Barbeau, with whom she learned and refined processes of intense meditative awareness in nature. The tenor of Appleby’s work reflects the sensation of that observational practice and resides at the core of her philosophical approach to painting.
