About Anne V. Buchanan

“Drawing is the art of being able to leave an accurate record of the experience of what one isn't, of what one doesn't know.”  Brett Whitele

I was a research associate in the Anthropology Department at Penn State University for many years, where I studied biological complexity and evolution. I produced digital illustrations for several books that I co-wrote but since I left research, I have been surprised and delighted to find a new kind of gratification in capturing moments, shapes, nature, faces through pen and pencil drawing and through painting in watercolor.  I find that I draw for the moment when a picture comes alive.  

I have two grown daughters, one a violinist and the other a silversmith whose creative inclinations now seem less mysterious. I live with my husband and three demanding and affectionate cats (occasionally willing to lend their services as artistic models) in Central Pennsylvania.
