"Delicate, haunting and ethereal landscape images that evoke a past world of myth and legend."International printmaker, Anna Harley SWA, works out of Spike Print Studio in Bristol. She has a Masters Degree in Multi-Disciplinary Printmaking and lives with her family at the foothills of the Mendips, a designated area of outstanding natural beauty, in the South West of England. Anna's work is firmly rooted within the Landscape tradition, while the fabric textures that inhabit her prints are an echo of her Scandinavian Arts and Crafts background and nomadic childhood. She builds up her screenprints in layers formed from multiple exposures of her drawings, photographs and fabric fragments."My prints are a response to landscape as a metaphor for emotions and experience through the use of semi-abstracted images".
