Anna Wilson-Patterson’s current paintings explore her fascination with the haunting coastal landscape of the South East. Walking her elegant hounds, 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 plants."
Anna qualified as an art teacher and worked in community settings before opening her own gallery. She currently exhibits in UK galleries and ships paintings world wide from this website and her Etsy Shop. Her influences include the painters Joan Eardley, Winifred Nicholson and Tessa Newcomb.
She lives in Fairlight Cove where, by prior appointment, visitors can see paintings for sale in her Studio or discuss potential commissions. She holds an Open Studio as part of the Coastal Currents Arts Festival every September and posts a visual diary of her work on Instagram & Facebook.
