Following grammar school (HBS) and studying to become a chemical analyst, Anne Tromp obtained qualifications in handicrafts and textile work forms. She had long played with colours, using fabric and threads. In 2007, however, her interest took on a new dimension when she started to apply herself to painting, especially watercolours.
She joined a small group taught by Nancy Prins (a student of Ron Ranson) from Gees. From time to time she also took lessons from other artists. She likes to play with colour using a large brush (Ron Ranson).
She draws her inspiration both from culture and her immediate and wider natural surroundings. Therefore she often takes a camera with her to capture scenes which she may then use later as a basis for further development in form and colour.
