New Artist Arrives in Town

By staff writer

Anne Beverley Stamps
This past December 2005, Signal Mountain gained a new resident, Anne Beverley Stamps. Tired of her roof being blown off from one hurricane after another, this Pensacola Beach, Florida transplant picked Signal Mountain as her new home. With a son and his family in Memphis and daughter in Nashville, it made the decision easier.

Originally from Memphis, Tennessee, Anne grew up going to camp at the Assembly Center in Monteagle. Many of her friends lived on Lookout and Signal Mountains and she remembered the beauty of the mountains. This is important to Anne because she is an artist and appreciates the beauty around her. She attended the Memphis College of Arts. Before becoming a “full time” artist, Anne owned and operated the Moss Rose Inn and Café in the historic district in Jackson, Tennessee where she served as the vice-president of the Tennessee Bed and Breakfast Association. In addition, Anne wrote a column called “Good Cookin’” in the local newspaper. Known as a local cook, restaurateur and caterer, her column shared her experiences in the kitchen.

In 1995, while living in Pensacola, Anne’s love for painting became a full time business. A licensed print artist her artwork is sold to dealers throughout the country. Going by the professional name of Anne Beverley, her stationary, placemats, coasters, and of course prints of flowers, birds, children, beach scenes and much more are among the items licensed. In addition, the local tourism bureau in their brochures promoting Pensacola, Perdido, and Navarre Beaches used her artwork. Anne is excited about adding mountain scenes to her collection.

Currently, she is writing and illustrating, a children’s book entitled, Paddy and Crocus Croakums, “Going Shopping,” a tale of two frogs going shopping, the first in a series of the adventures of the two frogs. For more information, check out Anne’s web site at or email Anne at . A collection of Anne’s prints is on view and for sale at both DeLon Design Group and Cutting Corners Framing and Art Gallery. According to Linda Roberts, owner of Cutting Corners, “The response to Anne’s work has been a positive one. People like her use of color, detail, and humor.”

We all welcome Anne to the mountaintop and look forward to seeing familiar scenes in her beautiful prints.
