Hi Anne, we absolutely love Dragon Fantasy! The koi are so graceful and lively, the dragon pot so detailed. We love the surreal quality of this composition - it's so eye-catching and unexpected! Thank you! Jackie

"Kumquats and Koi" hangs in my dining room. It always causes me to pause and wonder: are they floating or swimming; so real and so surreal. What a gift to have something so beautiful and intriguing interrupt my trance and bring me back to the Moment. Thank you, Anne

And meeting you was so special for us. Thank you so very much for sharing your talent and your wonderful love and animals and the environment. "Morning Coffee" happily greets us in the morning and throughout the day! It's such a treasure having a piece of your work in our home. Thank you Anne

Hi Anne I just purchased The Golden Hour as a present for my parent's anniversary. It was difficult to choose one as I love all your work. Thank you

Oh my goodness! I cannot believe how well you captured Basil. Her fur is absolutely real to life. The look in her eyes is exactly how she looked, and her mouth!!!! You even captured that little bit of dark fur at her mouth, Basil B will always be with me now, I hope you know how much joy this will bring me! She's perfect. Absolutely! Thank you, thank you! Unreal.

Today is our 32 wedding anniversary and my husband just opened your package. I greatly appreciate the great care you took to ensure the artwork arrived safely. You did fabulous packaging. I am thrilled to see Carp Capers in our home. it makes me think of Oak Bay Marina, drinking wine and eating wonderful food as I look at the fish which is a lovely thought since we are to have snow here on Saurday. Thank you so much Anne. Sheilagh, Calgary

Hi Anne: Koi Capers is now a part of our home and I couldn't be more pleased. I love the brilliant colours and the mystery embodied in the composition. On first seeing this piece in Victoria, I couldn't stop thinking about it. I know I will enjoy it every day. Thank you so much for your care in getting it safely to us. Bonnie Schepers - Ontario

Hi Anne. My painting arrived today and what a beauty. I thought I might put it in my office but have changed my mind and it is now hanging in my den at home, what a show piece. Thank you so much.

Hello Anne, I have just been introduced to your works this evening by Casey in Prince George, and I have to say, your work is very beautiful. I love the Sunflowers the most. The colours used are very bright and lively. You have some beautiful talent. I would love to chatt with you via email if you have some time. Thank you and am looking forward to seeing more paintings. :)

Hi Anne. It's here! Red Jade arrived safe and sound and it's even more beautiful than I remember. The only problem is that now I want to bring it home and give it to Jim tonight! It's definitely going to be hard to wait for Christmas. Thank you so much for all your help. I'm thrilled to be giving your beautiful piece of art a home. I'll plan on being in touch with you after I give it to Jim. Take care Anne and thank you, thank you! Anne Marie, Colorado Springs

Hi Ms.Bowen, I was admiring your landscapes and thought I'd let you know:) I am taking art lessons to de-stress and found your birch trees paintings. I am trying to do one as well thinking trees and foliage can't be that hard. Well am I surprised!! The challenge is worth it though and I wish you could be my teacher:) Thank you for inspiring new wannabe artists like me!

Lovely lovely zebras - whimsical yet soulful and so beautifully painted. You've done it again Anne. What a woman!

"Blue Ginger Jar" is really a Wow! While, if possible, we would like to see both koi paintings, we think, judging from the photograph, that we would like to make arrangements to purchase the Blue ginger Jar.

Wow, I am absolutely stunned by the beauty of your painting! I love the colours and definition in the trees. It looks so beautiful on my white walls, just POPS. I am not sure where its'new home will be, right now I am just carrying it around with me from room to room. Thanks so much, you are truly a very talented artist, I am humbled to own a piece of your work....happily, Rita

Hello Anne, I have admired your work at FRESH coffee shop. You're work is absolutely stunning. I especially enjoy the colors and shading that you bring out in your work. Nice to see that you are offering classes to share your gift.

We are the lucky owners of 'Round the Bend'! Tricky to decide on just which painting we would like to have, but this, in particular, reminded us of our most favorite of places. Anne, you have a very special gift!
