Anne Weeks - 10 Questions for Artists

Anne and I connected as we are both owned by our Jacks. And though we live within half an hour of each other we have yet to meet face to face. Such are the vagaries of life online. Anne has a honed eye for capturing everyday visuals and turning them into something exceptional. Our scenic province is not lacking for photos of seascapes, pretty coastal towns and abundant nature but Anne takes these things and brings out the subtle nuances and details. But it is her play with shape and colour with which I am particularly smitten. Someday Anne, we WILL meet and I'm stoked you answered my 10 Questions for Artists.

1. Favourite artist. Living or dead. 

 Photographer Robert Creamer

2. What's one thing in your studio you REALLY should throw out? 

Oil paints - I will never be an oil painter.

3. Best studio snack. (creative nutrition is important!)

President's Choice peanut butter filled pretzel nuggets (I am obsessed).

4. Favourite studio smell.

I love the smell of gallery board.

5. Least favourite studio smell.

Mod Podge.


6. Most used art related app on your phone.

Instagram is my first love

7. Top song in your studio.

Anything Joni Mitchell inspires my internal spirit.

8. Favourite art-related author, podcast(er), YouTuber.

I can't say I have a favourite author/podcast, but I am fascinated by drone photography and follow several NS droners. I have been collecting their photos for a while and dream of using them to inspire abstract paintings and mixed media.

9. Least favourite part of art-making.

My least favourite part is when so many people love a photo I have taken, and I actually think it's a boring piece and when I take a photo I am thrilled with and no one gives it a second glance.

10. Describe THE thing that would make you think: "I've Made It."

Every time a widely known photographer reacts positively to one of my pieces, I feel as though I can actually call myself an artist and my maker space, small as it is, a studio.   

More about Anne:

Anne Macleod Weeks is a photographer and writer on the South Shore of Nova Scotia. She is a fifth generation Nova Scotian who was raised in the US.

Anne's work can be found in the Lunenburg Art Gallery, The Point General, and in many local shows. She has been published widely in professional journals and had her first flash fiction piece accepted into an anthology.


Thanks so much, Anne!
