Annie Matheson is a lyrical abstract artist whose intuitive works reference landscape. She says, 'Once I begin, I may have an idea where the work is heading but often something quite different to my expectations emerges'.

Annie Matheson, born in Melbourne, moved to the Mid North Coast, NSW, in the 1970s. She has recently relocated to Sydney. Matheson took up painting in the 1990s and has sought a personal education path including receiving tuition from abstract artist, Peter Griffin. A keen photographer and bushwalker, Matheson, channeled her environmental observations into her abstract paintings post 2002, following a move to the coastal village of Sawtell. In 2006, Annie was the first emerging artist invited to exhibit at the Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery (work acquired), and in the same year was invited to participate in a group show at the New England Regional Art Museum. She has also successfully shown in local regional commercial galleries.
