A SOUTH LONDON ARTIST TO WATCH
We visited the artist Anna Lovely last week, in her studio in South East London.

Here she is, sitting by some of her work, with a lovely lampshade which she painted, just in front.
Anne does a lot of her work in a studio space at her home, and the whole area is full of visually stunning pieces of art work, plus paintings by her father, artist Paddy Lovely.

There is a strong link to Camberwell Art School, too. Anna studied at Camberwell and the Royal Academy Schools, and her father Paddy, mother Belle, and daughter, Bonnie, have all studied at Camberwell.
The work is predominantly in watercolour or acrylic, and Anna uses a light, luminous palette of colours. The work is brilliant and glows on the walls.

Anna and her family are very hospitable and a warm welcome is always given!
Recent exhibitions include one in at the Jeannie Avent Gallery, East Dulwich in Northcott Road.
I recommend that you make a point of seeing Anna's work when she next exhibits, and snap up one of her lovely paintings while they are still affordable!
