Anna Marrow has been working as a printmaker, illustrator and image-maker for 20 years. She studied Fine Art in Bristol and then Communication Design at Central Saint Martins, specialising in illustration. She now draws at home and make prints at Spike Print Studio, Bristol, working with household paints, biros, fine liners, pencil crayons and screen print. Most of her prints begin as biro and ink drawings in my sketch book. They are developed into collages, and later become screen prints.
Anna makes surprising, sometimes humorous or alarming images by combining mundane objects and environments with exotic creatures and characters. Pin pointing a specific moment in time, she is often often drawn to objects from her childhood such as 70s televisions, radios and cars which all feature heavily in her work, as do urban and suburban landscapes.
