While not painting or travelling, she wrote and illustrated the Women’s Page for The Times of Zambia.
She was a founder member of Graphic Arts Group in Ndola Zambia and later of Adrem in Nairobi Kenya - both of which dealt with up-market advertising.
On moving to France, she augmented her painting with illustrations for French magazines and contributing a regular illustrated, fashion article for The Star, Johannesburg.
Back in London she was greatly encouraged in her painting by her old friend Professor Carel Weight RA and it was at this time that Crane Kalman bought several of Annfield’s landscapes for his gallery in Knightsbridge.
Another of her great supporters and admirer of her paintings was David Kitchin, who for many years ran Rowley Contemporary Art in Kensington W8 and brought Annfield’s work to a larger public at The Affordable Art Fairs.
Her atmospheric work in the northern hemisphere has been likened to that of Edvard Munch though paintings done more recently in India and SW France are naturally much brighter,
A personal note.... “The English border county of Herefordshire instilled in me a love of wild landscapes with dramatic, often brooding skies and Celtic mystery - the land of King Offa and Merlin. Landscapes with lone buildings, lone trees and few people. Over the years I have been drawn to more dramatic places in Britain, mainland Europe, Africa and Asia where the inhabitants are strong, independent and full of character and I like to think that these characteristics are reflected in my work. I am magnetised to a place before wishing to paint it and then the atmosphere evolves. My paintings are direct and represent a visual interpretation of a place that has happily inspired me.” JA
