Anaya is a variation of the original name Anaiah, meaning 'God answered'. Though this had absolutely nothing to do with this artwork at the time.

Again, not uncommon in these earlier years where I am obviously trying to find my feet, I'm not quite sure where I found this name, or why I even used it. But I do know how I was feeling when I created her.

Have you ever felt that you just wanted to flow with the wind and make the most of all the opportunities out there but you just seem to be continually boxed in? Well now, 8 years later, I know I am the only one who built those walls around myself... and I'm the only one who can break them down.

Be bold, be sexy, be fierce and escape your own confines.

Admired for my meticulous sense of order, strikingly acute lines, bold, unyielding saturated colour and (in more recent years) the stimulating divergence and texture of mixed media and textile applique. I am an artist dedicated to celebrating and empowering women, passionately revealing her sensuality, opening her heart and saluting her confidence and spirited strength of character upon the canvas.

Be kept up-to-date with all of the things with all of the ease, by filling in your information on the form just below! 

Be bold, be sexy, be fierce.
