Anna has dual British and New-Zealand nationality and grew up in Chester, UK. She now lives in Stratford-Upon-Avon. She aims to capture the feeling and atmosphere of a place in paint. She walks in mountains and hills, sketching outside and then later painting in her studio. She is particularly inspired by the forces of nature and the effects of light on the sea, of storm and of wind and sky. She aims to express an emotional connection with the landscape and also paints to express personal feelings. She enjoys travelling to cities in Europe and soaks up the atmosphere, painting what she has seen on return.
Education: BA Honours Visual Studies/German, Oxford Brookes University. After giving up work in Publishing and Export Sales, she now paints full-time. She is fluent in Dutch and German.
