Anna Wright – UK Artist & Illustrator
Anna was brought up in Dumfriesshire, southwest Scotland. Surrounded by rural life, which alongside her love for colour, pattern and textiles, has shaped her work as an artist and illustrator.
Since exploring these influences at Edinburgh College of Art, Anna has grown her trademark style of colour and humour using a mixture of fabric, feathers, pen, ink & paint. On any given day you'll find her in her studio sketching away or delving into her chest of fabric that she has sourced from varied locations. Animals are her main focus and she uses bold inky lines to capture their humour and character adding fabric & feathers to bring colour & texture to her drawings. If the mood is right the images are signed off with a witty caption adding to the joy of the creation.
Over the years Anna has grown her drawings into a business and now makes a range of beautiful prints, cards, mugs, homeware & gifts. Wherever possible, all of her products are UK made with a focus on quality, sustainability and durability.
Anna splits her time between her studio in Edinburgh (where it all started) and Kennington, London where she works out of a beautiful Victorian craftsman's mews.
Live Wires has been working with Anna since 2014. Her cards and humour are easily related to here in New Zealand – we ‘get it’ and we certainly think many of your customers will too!
