Artist in Residence
Each year we have an Artist in Residence. Anna Longridge was the artist for La Boheme in 2016.
Anna has painted and exhibited all her life. Her career began with her first major show in Bermuda of oils painted with palate knife, boats being of great interest.
In watercolours, she has developed her own technique, creating translucent images without washes. Her years of engraving at Putney Art School became a great discipline in her later architectural watercolours and oils around Europe and the Middle East. She is a tour leader for the Ultimate Travel Company and has travelled extensively worldwide, particularly to St Petersburg.
She also teaches at Marlborough Summer School and elsewhere. See www.annalongridge.com
