Artist Bio

A little bit about Anna…

Having been brought up with all sorts of animals including a host of horses in all shapes and sizes, I have long been fascinated by country life and drawn by the colours of fairgrounds and the world of the circus.

I want to capture the expression, reactions and spirit of my subjects rather than use a photo-realist approach. I like to paint from observation and memory in order to give the work a sense of vitality and freedom.

Both my parents have been a major influence on my work. My Father is a wheelwright and carriage builder, and my Mother is a carriage painter, so from an early age I have been surrounded by the business of making and painting. Sign writing skills are a family tradition that I like to keep alive by utilising these techniques in the making of show boxes, signs, coffee tables and rocking horses.

I work mainly in oils on canvas using a broad spectrum of colour… often with a strong sense of light and shade. The scale of my work varies according to the subject matter, though I mostly enjoy working on large scale pieces.
