Anna Schofield [Biography]

Anna Schofield

Anna has been drawing and painting since she was a young girl. She used to draw and paint nature, portraits and architecture whenever she had a chance in her free time.

She finished a law degree in Criminal law and become successful in future roles in corporate business, however her creative side was left unfulfilled. Art was more of a way of spending her free time rather than a way of living until 2015.

After 12 years of working in administration she decided to change her profession and follow her heart. She finished an Art and Design course at New College Nottingham and since then art has become her full time job. It was almost like the passion for creation was waiting to be released and she started her journey as an artist. Her final show at college was a big success and revealed an interest in a contemporary approach.

Anna is a very independent artist, self-taught and treats art as a real need for psychological existence. She loves travelling and documenting interesting parts of nature, seascapes, skies, harbours and light. The places she visits, live long in her memory until she is ready to bring them back to life on canvas with her own interpretation.

She starts the artwork by creating a suggestion of the mark using acrylic, gesso or other media and then covers it with many layers of oil paint. Texture is an integral part of her work and she enjoys the process of evolving areas as they emerge. She works mainly with palette knives, fingers and a variety of other implements as well as brushes to create diversity in her mark-making. Her combination of texture, strong colours and light create an uplifting and positive result. Some paintings take a few hours, some days and others a few weeks as she lives with the painting and constantly adds changes and details to make sure she has captured everything she wanted to say. Her abstracts are strongly influenced by her passion for Argentine tango and emotional response to nature.


Anna uses both glaze and impasto techniques. The variety of techniques dating back to the times of the Italian Renaissance, the painting is intertwined with the modern treatment of painting texture. Her generous glazes can change the chroma, value, hue and texture of a surface. Numerous semi-transparent layers on a painting modifies the appearance of the underlying structure. Each colour and their mix on the canvas has deep spiritual meaning creating the 'landscape of the soulÂ’. Also the influence of colour in the soul of the viewer has the strong transformative effect that we can call communication of the souls. The symbiosis between the artist and the viewer.


Her works are sold internationally and exhibited in local galleries such as Henry Brewer Gallery in West Bridgford, Gallery 18 in Loughborough, Fourwalls Gallery in Melton Mowbray, Long Acre Studios in Bingham and Meander and Mooch in Newark. She participates in art events in the UK each year presenting her new work as well as running workshops and art demonstrations for local groups of artists.
