Welcome to Devon artist Anje Yelf's website.

I am a British artist who lives and works in Devon. Living in the westcountry offers fabulous opportunities for an artist. The light is excellant; the variety of landscapes and seascapes is wonderful. North devon cliffs; wild dartmoor with its ever changing weather and light; coves and sandy beaches; fishing ports; estuaries rich with birdlife; villages and market towns. My painting subjects are mainly landscape, seascape, botanical and still-life and the painting mediums I prefer include oil paints and watercolours.

A synopsis of each area of this website is listed below.

More to follow; this is currently under development:

My intentions are to develop a website, which will contain something of interest for anyone who visits the site.

Further topics will be developed on the views and natural habitat around the traditional market town of Newton Abbot in Devon, (where I have lived since 1969), including its architecture and places to visit.
