Anne Packard is a third generation Provincetown painter and artist from Cape Cod. Her grandfather, Max Bohm, came to Provincetown with many European and American artists, including her grandmother, uncle, mother. He was a leading turn of the century impressionist painter, and Packard’s work carries on a tradition that runs strong in her family.
Born and raised in Hyde Park, NJ, Anne spent summers as a child in Provincetown. She moved there full time in 1977 after raising 5 children. Initially her art was worked on wood panels and weathered shingles, and Anne has painted the Outer Cape, Ireland, Italy, Greece and Mexico for over 30 years.
“Anne Packard’s paintings are like pieces of driftwood washed up on the shore – each seems to bear a history of its own and will tell you about
itself if you’re willing to spend the time…(her) paintings reward with an abundance of surprises and rich, imaginative color. They aren’t your
average day at the beach.” – Paul Parcellin, Art New England
