Annette Allman


Anne has been drawing and painting all her life, but it wasn’t until ten years ago that she had the time and space to seriously devote to her art. Telling a story is what motivates her to paint. For the past 25 years, she has listened to people’s personal and frequently painful stories about abuse, loss and betrayal. Being a clinical psychologist in solo private practice, specialising in assisting people with chronic depression and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, she became accustomed to helping people find a spiritual or creative way out of their despair. Not only would she try to give them a deeper understanding of their problems, she would also endeavour to help them rise above their pain and suffering to look at their pain in a more meaningful way. Her paintings naturally became an extension of her psychological practice and she found herself creating works inspired by her clients’ stories.
