Local Artist Profile 

Name: Anita Eastwood

Born: Somalia

In Jersey since: 1991

Practice: Watercolour painting

Anita’s work focuses on developing colour whilst trying to represent true form. Her choice of subjects gravitate towards florals and landscapes. She is interested in creating sweeping washes, and usually paints with a wet into wet style. The artist uses brushes and spray bottle of water to continue adding colours and shapes. The composition develops with layers of washes, whilst the use of spray keeps the edges soft creating varied effects. She has worked on a number of private commissions and loves Jersey as a “fabulous canvas for ideas”. You can find Anita’s work on Facebook.
