Anna left rural Hampshire to go art college in Leicester and ‘improve the world though better designed curtains and attractively drawn protest banners.’ Since graduation she has used her creative problem-solving skills to work on a wide variety of projects mainly in the south of England.

Anna was a founder of Dot to Dot Arts where she worked until 2010 when she left to work on the Hampshire Diversity Support Project which was managed by Action Hampshire. Since then she has continued in a number of roles for Action Hampshire and in 2015 became the Fratton Big Local Community Development Worker – a post she enjoys because of the variety and challenge.

When not at Fratton Big Local, Anna continues to work as a participatory artist and helps to run Top Banana Circus, a social enterprise based at the Guildhall in Portsmouth.
