Anna Wright

Anna Wright grew up in Dumfriesshire and graduated from Edinburgh College of Art in 2006 with a degree in illustration.

After working for the fashion designer Katherine Hooker in London, Anna Wright became a full-time artist in 2008. She now lives and works in Edinburgh.

Since then Anna has quickly established a reputation for her original mixed-media artworks. They combine illustration with a variety of materials from feathers, fabrics, and ribbon.  With her instantly recognisable style, Anna’s birds, animals, and costumes are a colourful mix of collage and illustration.

Growing up in the countryside her interest include:

  • ‘textiles,
  • interiors,
  • food,
  • wildlife,
  • the outdoors and anything a little silly’

This has inspired beautifully drawn artworks, full of character and an irresistible sense of humour.
