Anna Walsh is a British Artist based in London, whose work investigates the relationship humans have with animals and nature. She practices traditional style illustrations and techniques to convey an accurate representation, while drawing on popular culture and approaches to present a contemporary slant to her work. She mainly uses drawing, watercolours, oil paints and screen prints, as well as digital media and book arts. Although her work is heavily influenced by natural history illustrations, the content is somewhat less scientific and more concentrated on the social roles of animals in our lives.
She is a founding member of the art collective Garudio Studiage, for whom she designs and makes various products for sale, or works on larger commissions alongside the other members. She has had several solo exhibitions at Westbourne Grove Church Art Space, and has work in collections such as Tate Gallery London Artists' Book Collection and Camberwell College of Arts Library as well as various private collections.
