Anne-Marie Furse has always had an interest in all ​types of arts and crafts. She started painting about ​seven years ago. Most of her work is landscapes where ​she tries to bring the atmosphere and essence of the ​place into her work . She researches locations so she ​can attempt to represent the geology, history and ​ecology of the place as much as possible.

Living in South East Cornwall most of her inspiration ​comes from Dartmoor and the Cornish coast.

A New Day dawns

Ebb and Flow

Polly Joke Beach , Cornwall

Oil on Board

Having always lived near the beach this ​painting reminds me of summer, ​holidays, swimming in the sea and ​relaxing whilst reading a book.



Seaton Beach, Cornwall

Mixed media on canvas

60 x 60 cm

On a trip to Seaton I had to take some reference ​photos for this painting as the sun reflecting on ​the water was so beautiful. I collected some ​sand and seaweed whilst I was there. I came ​home and painted this. I wanted it to be as ​authentic as possible so I included the sand in ​the foreground for texture and used the ​seaweed as a brush.


A New Day dawns

PASTEL 32CM X 23 cm

I have just been on a cruise down the Danube and I got up at 5am to watch the sunrise. As it was so stunning I had to paint it. We were sailing through Slovakia at this point and the scenery was so beautiful.

Autumn Days

The Acer Glade, Bodnant Gardens, Conwy

When living in North Wales we lived 10 minutes from ​Bodnant Gardens. I was so lucky that I could go ​there at all times of the year as this 80 acre garden ​which belongs to the National Trust is beautiful at ​all times of the year. It is well known for its 55m ​laburnum arch but Autumn was always my favourite ​time to go as the Acer Glade was stunning.

On a holiday to Madeira we went to the town of Funchal. We ​caught a bus to the top of the mountain and then got into a ​big basket and got pushed down the mountain in it by men ​wearing white suits who had just come out of the bar. This ​sounds very random but is true (google it). This painting ​reminds me of exciting times on holidays

Mixed media on paper

Acrylic, inks and grass were used in this painting. I love its ​texture. I can imagine fairies or little pixies hiding in the ​undergrowth. I had no plan for this painting and jut let it ​evolve. Hope you like it as much as I do. It reminds me of ​walks in the woods on hot summer days.

In the bleak midwinter


Dartmoor Series - 1 Nuns Cross is located outside Princetown, near to the sinister looking Napoleonic ​Prison. It is a very bleak part of the Moor. It was built in 1870 and is a very eerie place. According to ​legend the farmers wife went to check on her cattle when the farm was shrouded in mist and never ​returned. Her ghost is said to wander about the place till this day.


Another Day Dawn's- Brentor, Dartmoor.

Oil on Canvas 60x60cm

St Michael de Rupe Church stands 1000 feet above sea level. The tiny Norman Church is a ​prominent landmark across West Devon and is one of the iconic sights of Dartmoor. It is ​surrounded in myth and legend. One legend says the devil was out looking for prey and ​created a terrible storm at see. A merchant ship full of spices and silks was been battered ​by the storm and was told by the devil he would not survive the storm. The merchant ​prayed to St Michael and said if he survived the storm he would build a Church on the top ​of the highest piece of land he could see. St. Michael helped him survive the storm and the ​merchant set about carrying the stone up the hill to build the Church by hand.



Windy post

Windy Post Dartmoor.

Acrylic on Canvas 60x60cm

Windy Post is near Pew Tor on Dartmoor. ​This late medieval granite Cross marked the ​moorland route from Merrivale to Moortown. ​It stands at a meeting place of several old ​trails. The cross which is 2m high is one of ​over 100 on Dartmoor.


The hurlers

The Hurlers, Minions, Bodmin Moor, Cornwall

Acrylic on Canvas 90x60 cm

The Hurlers Stone Circles at Minions in Cornwall are a late Neolithic or early Bronze Age stone circle. According to legend they are the remains of petrified men playing hurling which was a favourite Sunday afternoon activity in time gone by. There are three groups of circles which are extremely rare.

In this painting I have tried to capture the atmosphere of the place which probably doesn't look much different now than it did centuries ago.



Tuscan Rooftops

Onwards and Upwards - Sold

A taste of Tuscany

Tuscan rooftops

San Gimignano, Tuscany


I love the colours of Tuscany and have reflected them in thus painting. San Gimignano is a hill town surrounded by 13th century walls. It's skyline of medieval towers can be seen from the surrounding area which mainly consist of vineyards. Quintessentially Tuscan.


Onwards and upwardS

Verrucola, Tuscany

Verrucola is a little village in Tuscany. Whilst it only ​has a population of 70, it has a castle.

Italso has a lovely little Trattoria which is the first ​building on the right through the arch. After painting ​this picture I enjoyed a delicious lunch there.


A taSte of tuscany

Verrucola, Tuscany


I loved the shape and rustic look of ​these buildings. The tiny village is ​in the area of Fivizzano, about an ​hour from Pisa. Tuscany is ​definitely one of my favourite ​places.




Bluebell Woods - Sold


Acrylic on canvas

We have lots of purple and yellow iris in the ​garden. They looked so stunning last year I had ​to capture the moment. A key function in art is ​to create memories.


Bluebell woods

Bluebell Woods
