Me

Anna has tried very hard to create a soundbitey mission statement, encapsulating her artistic and philosophical concerns. They tend to be really wanky, so she usually deletes them. (However, if you are determined to read something esoteric, please see the Artist’s Statement.)

Anna was born in Glasgow in 1977, and read Experimental Psychology & Philosophy at Worcester College, Oxford (although, she is not a twat). She worked in academic publishing before turning to photography full-time in 2006. In 2012, she transitioned from a purely commercial practice to an artistic one, embracing other media.

Before art, she used to have moderate success with poetry, publishing in, well, mostly mags that aren’t around anymore (Rialto, The Frogmore Papers, Orbis). Despite not writing these days, she was shortlisted for the 2015 Montreal Poetry Prize.

Her passions include travel and wilderness, but the greatest of them all is music and she is a whore to every genre. She no longer plays the cello (a great mercy to us all), but can still occasionally be caught with guitar in hand or at the keys. She sings with various choirs. She also sings folk and jazz. Sometimes even in public.

She currently exists in Milton Keynes.
