About the artist

Australian-born artist Anne-Marie Zanetti has a contemporary, expressive style that combines simple, flowing elements with rich colour, tone, and detail. Her highly realistic still life, portrait, and figurative works are inspired by the beauty of the world, saturated in light, and are rendered in layers of fine, smooth brushstrokes and glazes.

Embarking on her fulltime art career in her early 40s, Anne-Marie’s work draws inspiration from her deep exploration of personal experiences, particularly the wide spectrum of human emotions. The soulful quality of Anne-Marie’s work is deeply rooted in her life’s transformative moments. Her art reflects her transformative journey, which includes overcoming significant challenges and finding a sense of fulfilment.

Represented by galleries in Noosa and New York, Anne-Marie Zanetti’s artistry has earned her numerous accolades and recognition, including participation in prestigious events like the Doug Moran Prize and a recent award in the esteemed 15th International ARC Salon. Throughout her career, she has exhibited her works at prominent art fairs and group exhibitions across the globe, including Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Miami, and San Diego, among other locations.

Artwork Themes & Subject Matter

As a self-taught realist artist, Anne-Marie Zanetti finds boundless inspiration in the simple yet profound beauty that surrounds us, both in people and everyday objects. Her art is a celebration of the ordinary, a tribute to the moments and emotions that often go unnoticed. She is enamored by the subtleties in the human experience and the vast spectrum of emotions we encounter.

Through Anne-Marie’s work, she aims to capture the essence of these emotions and bring them to life. She believes that there is a profound, universal connection in the way we feel and perceive the world, and she strives to depict that shared human experience. Whether it’s the play of light on a peeled mandarin, the expression in a person’s eyes, or the quiet moments of introspection, she seeks to convey the intricate tapestry of life’s simplicity and beauty.
