Anna Wilson-Patterson’s current work explores her fascination with the haunting coastal landscape of Hastings Country Park, Winchelsea Beach and Rye Harbour Nature Reserve. Walking her elegant hounds daily at dawn and dusk she wanders the open vistas of shingle, sand and sea, punctuated by fishermens' shacks, railway carriages, groynes and wild flowers.
“My gestures of adding, dragging and removing paint imitate the natural world, the tidal ebb and flow, the movement of clouds and wind. I am drawn to desolate, peaceful places. My subjects include huts, hounds and plants from my clifftop garden."
Anna is qualified to teach art and has worked in community settings since 1991. She currently exhibits her paintings, monoprints and greeting cards in UK galleries and sells original paintings world wide from this website. Her influences include the painters Joan Eardley and Tessa Newcomb.
She lives in Fairlight Cove, where visitors can see works for sale in her Studio, by prior appointment. She accepts commissions featuring huts or hounds.
