Anya Simmons was born in 1969 in Uganda and moved to Nairobi, Kenya in 1972. Living in Africa for the first fourteen years of her life and then moving to the UK had a profound impact on the diversity of her work and where many of her creative ideas have emerged. 

Anya studied a BEd teaching degree with art and design and enjoyed a successful career as a primary school teacher for many years, before going on to pursue her passion and love for art. Her first solo exhibition was held at Walton village, in 2005, and she was overwhelmed by the response. This encouraged her to continue developing her own expressive and individual style and she has enjoyed exhibiting in various galleries throughout the UK, holding regular events and exhibitions throughout the year.

Her more recent works are profoundly influenced by beautiful coastal landscapes, quirky harbours and the ever changing countryside of Great Britain. “I enjoy working with various mediums creating an exciting blend of textures, shapes and vibrant colours; whilst continually experimenting with the effects that can be created using gesso, acrylic, acrylic inks and a variety of mark making materials. I love the depth of colour, movement and versatility that can be achieved using these elements” says Anya. 

Often, she will imagine a scene and decide how she want certain colours to flow together to create a particular atmosphere. Anya gets enormous pleasure from examining the form, colours, light and textures within our diverse landscape and she continually strives to capture this.

She often take pictures of rolling fields, flowers, cliffs, mountains, headlands, buildings (i.e. cottages, beach huts, castles etc), seascapes and the ever changing sky and takes inspiration from the magical beauty of the natural world around us. 

Within her works she strives to give her audience the romance or memory of a scene/landscape which is recognised as real but does not always have a physical location-almost like a landscape within a dream.
