Anna Martin is an artist and life coach. She started her career at the Chelsea School of Art and then later went to study in New York at the Parsons School of Design. She is half Spanish, half English and has worked for many years in Spain. She now lives in Cheltenham UK where she continues with her own painting. She combines this with running painting holidays in Turkey and Spain as well as other areas of the Mediterranean. She has escorted groups on painting holidays along the Mediterranean for many years and loves to encourage participants to explore new approaches and develop their personal style.
Her current colourful and expressive paintings reflect the heat and colour of the Mediterranean. She says of her paintings,
“My work is about expressing colour and emotion, rhythm and dynamics. My paintings are aimed at transformation and eliciting unconscious responses in the viewer. I aim to capture the essence of the subject giving more intensity through working unconsciously, often on several paintings at a time and this results in a unique approach for each painting”.
