Biography

Anna-Louise Painting

Anna-Louise graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2003 having received first class honours from Central Saint Martins. She is often regarded as a reportage artist, for her work is generally painted on location in ink on paper.  These studies are then used as reference material and scaled up into large oil on canvas paintings.

From 2009-2011 Anna-Louise had an art gallery in Cornwall, where she exclusively showed her own work documenting village life, local architecture and scenes from the bay. Moving to New York City in 2013, she worked on a much larger scale producing abstract cityscapes in oils. It was during this time that she began producing screen prints of Manhattan at The Art Student's League of New York before moving back to the UK in 2015.

Anna-Louise has always been interested in depicting a variety of subjects. In 2005 she was commissioned by the Ministry of Defence to paint their aircraft carriers, harrier jump jets and helicopters. These images were used in sponsored exhibitions and as part of the Royal Navy's recruitment campaign. She is known internationally for painting historic and modern racing cars, travelling all over the world to attend events such as Pebble Beach, the Nurburgring, Goodwood, Monza and Spa.  A collection of her car paintings were exhibited at the Le Mans Museum (France) in 2012.

Anna-Louise is now based in London and works in Wimbledon Art Studios where she continues to paint large landscapes of London & New York, as well as accepting portrait commissions.
