Anna said: "I produce ‘Fluid Art’ on canvas. My work aims to be original, decorative and stimulating. I have been working on this technique and creating these paintings for the last year. I have sold some I am continuing to refine and experiment with my techniques.

"Previously I worked in financial services with my last role being a Business Risk Manager for St James’s Place Wealth Management in London
"I then had my own Onevine Painting and Decorating business, including renovations, but decided on a career change to have a better quality of life and I' ve been an artist now since 2015."
