Oar Art by Anna Jacobi
Anna loves oars, a passion evolved from her love of sailing, sea life, nature and art. She has specialized in painting wooden nautical oars and collects character antique wooden oars, decorating them with paint, textured materials and decoupage. She enjoys the use of design, colour, interesting textures and space on both old and new oars, incorporating a unique nautical look.
Anna’s unique oars are obtained through Art Exhibitions and some retail shops throughout NZ or through direct orders.
She continues exploring many facets of the Art world including painting, calligraphy, mosaic and design. When she is not painting Anna can be found working in her husband’s family business based in Auckland designing not Oars but Homeware product. Through business she came across the vibrant Helen at Live Wires who was exhibiting at the same Gift Fair in 2018. Several conversations later images of her Oars were exchanged including an Oar commission and an opportunity to print images onto cards.
We have taken Anna’s unique designs and placed the images together to make these stunning new cards of her work.
