NZ Art Show 2018 - Sold Out!
"Different" was the one word that buyers used most to describe Anna's
work at the 2018 NZ Art Show. In June 2018 at Wellington's TSB Arena, Anna was one of only three artists to completely sell their entire
stock of paintings.
Buyers were struck by her originality and imagination. She sold 10 large and 2 smaller paintings over the course of the show. Her fellow artists were extremely supportive of the young artist, applauding her as she sold the last painting. She made some wonderful new friends and spoke to hundreds of people about her art.
