Ann Lewis RCA
Born in St. Asaph, Flintshire, Ann studied at the Art College in Bangor and then at Exeter College of Art and Design.
After graduating in Graphic Design at Exeter in 1988, Ann returned to Wales, initially working as a freelance designer and illustrator.
A gradual evolution from designer to fine artist began in 1993 when Ann was elected a member of the Royal Cambrian Academy. In April 2014, Ann was elected Vice-President of the Academy.
Since March 2009, Ann has worked full time as a printmaker, specialising in the reduction method of linocutting. She produces small editions of original prints in her studio in the Conwy Valley in North Wales.
Ann’s work is inspired largely by the Welsh landscape, its mountains, rivers, waterfalls, and coastline.
Ann has work in the National Library of Wales’ collection (February 2010), the Government‘s Art Collection (March 2012) and The Grosvenor Museum, Chester’s Print Collection (2017).
‘The challenge of capturing the movement of moving water or light shifting across the landscape never fails to test and seduce me and is something I return to again and again. With an ever-changing view from my studio window that stretches for miles down the Conwy Valley, inspiration is not in short supply’.

I’ve had a few pictures framed by Jonny & Shenac who offer a great service and excellent results. as well as providing a fantastic framing service, they are patient & informative & obviously expert in their field. The gallery is full of well curated artwork, ceramics, homeware & textiles. Warwickshire artists are well represented and it is easy to find something beautiful, interesting and original. Love it. The gallery is bright, wonderfully laid out and you are made welcome everytime you visit.
I use Fosse House Gallery all the time for my picture framing. As an artist it’s important to get the frame right for each piece of work and Fosse House Gallery as well as being friendly & welcoming have the knowledge & skills to help with decision making. They have an extensive range of frame sections to choose from. Also, if you’re looking for a gift or artisan handmade piece, the gallery has a wonderful range of arwork. Well worth visiting.

Picked up my picture and so thrilled with the result due to patience, understanding and pleasant people to deal with. Altogether a very pleasant experience.
I was lucky enough to find myself at Fosse House Gallery a few weeks ago. The knowledgeable and friendly owner Shenac, has a wonderful eye and her creative space was packed full of delightful art and gifts. I couldn’t resist leaving without several packets of her delightful signature ‘bee’ cards. I will definitely be back.

You have done a great job of framing our Dior vintage poster – after many years we are now about to enjoy it! Excellent Jonny!! Lovely gallery, we wish you every success.

Just had 2 pictures framed of my artwork and am SO pleased with how professional they now look! Jonny was so helpful and took time helping me choose the right frame & knew exactly what I wanted. I’m a novice at this, but Jonny made me feel not only great for such a good job he made on framing my work, but gave my confidence a bit of a boost! Definitely bringing my artwork here again. Thanks Jonny! See you soon! Give Sox a cuddle from me.

Thanks for doing such a great job with the Hockney print. It’s now hanging in the hall for all to see and looks fabulous.
