..inspired by the abstract patterns Anthea sees in community and environment; she replicates these using simplistic spirited colour and texture. This may manifest in fibre, pastel, paint, collage, or a fusion of these! Her creations are always visual, and often tactile, wearable or functional.
..trained in Graphic Design in the late 1970s she worked in publishing and then spent a period introducing art techniques to children within the Education Department and privately. She has undertaken commissions using varying art techniques.
.. a firm conviction in art being accessible to all has been acted on by her creating unique, individual & exclusive pieces for sale at galleries, markets and via social media. The ‘wearable art’ fibre and jewellery range has been embraced, and continues to evolve incorporating her use of varied media.
.. Anthea says she delights in each new piece and that inspires her onto the next. She continually explores possibilities that fill her mind and challenges materials to achieve that outcome - often referring to her studio as the laboratory! .. the journey is still young
