Raised in the historic city of Cambridge, Anna was fortunate enough to be surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. Growing up with an Artist for a mother encouraged her to explore various avenues of her creativity before finally settling on her distinctive style. After finishing her degree at the University of York she decided to pursue a career as an artist working in both oil and acrylic mediums.
Whilst her concentration has been on understanding the more formal elements of balance, line and form, her unique reconstructions of landscape setting reflect an instinctive relationship with colour. Her creative process combines the vibrancy and excitement of existing settings with a natural creative energy through the mediums of texture and colour.
‘When painting landscapes, my aim is to create works that are unique and energetic.’
Taking inspiration from her mother at a surprisingly young age, Anna gradually began to develop a creative response to her surroundings. Works from impressionist masters such as Turner and Matisse have also helped her to find a unique style that balances the concepts of free expression and the more formal elements of art.
Anna has exhibited in various galleries in London, Cambridge and York as well as hosting a solo exhibition in the Autumn of 2013. At the end of last year she gained international recognition for her work with Saatchi. In the summer of 2014 she worked on a high profile interior design project with DAPA and Berkeley Homes at 1Tower Bridge. Most recently, she completed a commission for the University of York commemorating the History department's 50th anniversary.
Gammans is now working in London with DeMontfort Fine Art publishing company.
