Born in England, Anna showed an interest in art from an early age. Her passion for art, however, was put on the backburner while she earned a degree in microbiology at the University of Guelph and pursued a career in science. She rediscovered her art about 10 years ago, while taking a career break to raise her family of three boys, and is now a full time artist.
Anna specializes in vivid, acrylic landscapes. She boldly uses colour and contrast to capture beautiful snapshots of her life & environment. She hopes her work will evoke a joyful response in the viewer and convey her general sense of optimism for life. Most of her inspiration comes from her rural Ontario camping trips, her home city of Toronto, and her neighbour's gardens. Since she works from photographs, you will often see her out and about with her digital camera in hand.
Anna is represented by Dimensions Custom Framing and Gallery, in Toronto (http://dimensionsframing.com/), King St Gallery in Niagara on the Lake, and Pine Cliff Gallery in Bracebridge. Anna is a member of the Beach Guild of Fine Art in Toronto (www.BeachGuildofFineArt.com) and the Beach Studio Tour (www.BeachStudioTour.ca). She also sells her work from her home studio, shows or through commissions.
