Anna Wilson-Patterson’s current work explores her fascination with the haunting coastal landscape of East Sussex. 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 coastal gardens."
Anna is qualified to teach art and has worked in community settings since 1991. She currently exhibits in UK galleries and sells paintings, calendars, books and greeting cards 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 or discuss potential commissions, by prior appointment. She posts a visual diary of her work on Instagram and Facebook.
