About the artist:
Anita lives in both London and Umbria
One of Britain’s most recognised artists, Anita studied at Chelsea and Slade Schools of Art. She has developed a reputation for her dry point etchings which, over 25 years, have charted her family life with Nige her husband and their daughters. Alongside this her full painting skills come to the fore in her wonderful romantic interpretation of “everywoman” often in a verdant setting. There is great care and balance in the structure of the painting and the finest of brush works echoing renaissance techniques of artists such as Giotto. As Art Review says,
“It is nice to have a real humorist recruited to the ranks of gifted painters, she is to be congratulated on livening up our dreary lives”
Anita has been the President of the Royal Society of Painter Printmakers with work collected internationally including the Arts Council of Great Britain. Her work is part of permanent collections at the British Museum, the British Library and the V&A Museum in London. She holds major shows in London and at Marine House at Beer, of paintings produced both in her London studio and from her studio in Umbria where she spends one week each month.
