Hello! I’m Anna and I began Anna Peake Art during the final year of my degree. I studied Glass, Ceramics, Metalwork & Jewellery at the University for the Creative Arts in Farnham, Surrey. I am originally from a tiny town in South West Wales, which is why many of my pieces are of the Welsh countryside. More recently, because I've been moving around a little more I’ve been making other locations too. I also love to create locations important to you as this is how my project first began.. making my hometown which is important to me.
You can currently find me near Bury St Edmunds as an Artist in Residence at a school, helping the day to day running of the Art Department, creating my work and drinking far too much coffee.
I am soon going to move to Kent to undertake a role as Art Technician and complete my PGCE, but don’t worry I will not be abandoning making and Anna Peake Art.
