Full of variation, delighting in process, Anna acknowledges both contemporary influences and traditional art practice. Walking between abstraction and the figurative, inspired by nature’s patterns, preliminary marks start a dialogue on canvas. The space of the painting and artist become involved in a dance toward a creative balance.
Anna is an artist maker and creative practitioner. Working from her studio in Rye, painting in oil, she exhibits widely and has received support from the Arts Council.
Other work includes site specific installation, sculpture and text based installation.
