The work shown here is inspired by Monemvasia and the Peloponnese. Anna spent part of her childhood on Spetses during the 1950s. She now visits Greece for inspiration then returns to her studio in England where she painstakingly creates her works of art.

ANNA CHRISTY trained in Graphic Design during the 1970s. gaining a BA Honours degree plus an Art Teacher's Diploma.

While bringing up a family she continued to develop her interest in embroidery and textiles, taking a City and Guilds Certificate. She has been creating embroidered textile pictures based on the Greek landscape for the past twenty years. Her techniques have extended from the original fine hand-stitching to incorporate machine-stitching, collage, fabric painting and dyeing, hand-made papers and raw silk felts.

She also exhibited in British Artists in Greece in 1995 and in A British Gallery in Greece in 1998, both shows organised by Jill Yakas as part of Britain in Greece and Britain and Greece, two prestigious Festivals held in Athens.
