After gaining a Diploma in Painting at the School of Fine Arts, Anna Shuttlewood went on to graduate with a BA in Mural Painting and Fine Arts from the National Academy of Arts in Sofia, Bulgaria. Trained in the classical styles of Art, Anna has a strong fondness for the more traditional painting techniques.
She has had an enduring love of animals and drawing since her childhood. Witnessing the endearing, human-like and often humourous characters of the family cat and dog, she would make sketches of them, studying their behaviour and the relationship between them.
Anna has for several years now worked as an illustrator, creating pictures for greetings cards and children’s books. More recently however, she has started to write her own stories to accompany her illustrations.
