Originally from Northamptonshire, Anna completed an Art and Design Foundation course at Nene College before specialising in Footwear design at De Montfort University, Leicester. After 10 years working in industry as a shoe designer, in 2005, Anna decided it was time for a career change. She retrained to become a professional helicopter pilot and now flies the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance.
Anna therefore paints in her spare time on a semi-professional basis. She lives in Mattishall and loves the rural lifestyle that Norfolk provides. Her favourite subjects are animals, wildlife and landscapes of her local area. Anna has experimented with a number of different styles and medium, but she particularly enjoys working with pen and watercolour to create her animal portraits.
