About the artist and her work:
Anna is a British artist who has lived in Southwark since studying MA Book Arts at Camberwell College, graduating in 2001.
She is a founding member of Garudio Studiage, an art collective who combine design, art and fashion with a pronounced sense of humour and irony, whom make products for sale and work on collaborative projects.
Her individual practice combines traditional drawing skills with digital design and appropriates natural history illustration to convey the themes she explores of anthrozoology (interactions between humans and other animals).
She blends languages of science and art to create intricate maps, diagrams and charts that invite the viewer to take a closer look and find subtle subversions, often with a humorous undertone. ‘London Animal Stars’ above feature myths and legends of London’s animals to create celestial maps of the sky, inspired by vintage celestial globes.
