Anthea studied at the Ruskin School of Drawing, Oxford then taught art at Harrow School for twenty five years. She now lives and works in Herefordshire. Her subject matter is wide-ranging, colourful, often abstract or semi abstract, always built on drawing and using memory and imagination. She paints with oils mostly and sometimes acrylic and watercolour; sometimes she uses mixed media.
“ When I begin a painting, I never have an end in mind but work until I am satisfied with an outcome.”
Her exhibitions include, Open Studios in Hereford Art week, and many local exhibitions. She has also exhibited at The Gallery in Cork Street, London; The Parallax Art Fair, Chelsea,; The Affordable Art Fair, Bristol; The Affordable Art Fair, Brighton; The St Ives Society of Artists, Cornwall; Nadia Waterfield Fine Art, Stockbridge; and The Table Gallery Hay on Wye.
“My paintings are mostly about colour. They are always painted from a mixture of drawings, memory and partly from my imagination. My subject matter varies and is usually taken from landscape, flowers or people and some work is abstract. I paint a lot from memory as it allows me to experiment more and play with colour and not be ruled by what is actually there. I love painting and sharing ideas with other artists.”
