Anna studied painting at Camberwell College of Arts and interior design and styling at Chelsea College of Arts and Central St Martins. The acclaimed painter, Trevor Bell (a leading member of the younger generation of St. Ives artists), mentored Anna after seeing her paintings in 2005 and has provided invaluable advice over the years. Her work has been bought and commissioned by private collectors across Europe.
Anna also teaches Colour Theory and Upcycling Furniture at Chelsea College of Arts and is a regular speaker on both at The Ideal Home Show and Grand Designs Live.
In January 2015 Anna officially launched her first collection of homewares, which all have beautiful art at their core, as well as a sense of craft and the hand-made about them.To be viewed at annajacobsart.com.
