Anne Gordon was born in Glasgow in 1941 and died in 2005.

She studied at Glasgow School of Art and then taught art in schools. This was followed by peripatetic teaching in west Stirlingshire, where she settled. Much of her work was inspired by the local landscape, the Western Isles, Greece, Turkey, Tuscany and Andalucia; exploration of colour, tone and mood being important. She was elected an artist member of Glasgow Art Club in 1991. She also exhibited in San Francisco, and annually with RSA, Royal Glasgow Institute of the Fine Arts, Glasgow Society of Women Artists and SSWA.

In 1995, she shared a show at Duncan R Miller Contemporary, with solo exhibitions there in 2001 and 2004. 
She was represented by Duncan Miller Fine Art (London) at 20th Century Art Fairs at the Royal College of Art, plus Art '94 and '95 and at the Business Design Centre, London.

Numerous awards include The Lauder Award in 1986 and 1987. 

Over many years she enjoyed great success with her sympathetic and colourful impressions of landscapes in Scotland and the Mediterranean.
