Anna Vartiainen

Inspired by her natural surroundings past, present and imagined, Anna makes screen printed landscapes of the forest, coast and sky. From her childhood summers in Finland, to her current home on the south coast of England, the trees, land and horizons have affected her deeply and are explored in her work.

Beginning with hand-drawn and painted lines and textures, she builds layers for printing, playing with colour and transparency, to evoke the feeling of a familiar/remembered place.

Largely self-taught, Anna works from her home studio as well as a print workspace in Bognor. Anna runs an Artist's Open House at her home in Worthing, and exhibits regularly in her local area.
