Makers Market 2018: Anne Barrell

Anne attended art classes in New York and then returned to Britain to undertake a degree at Chelsea College of Art and Design. She then took a studio at Cockpit Arts in Holborn, London before moving to Eastbourne in 2004. Anne has exhibited at various shows in London and around England, and work has been commissioned to sell at The Jerwood Gallery, Emma Mason British Prints, Towner Gallery and Dulwich Picture Gallery.

There is an ‘Alfred Wallis’ feel to the sgraffito pieces featuring merchant ships, sailing boats, fishing trawlers and all things to do with the sea and coast. Rum cups, pedestal bowls, and jugs have hand painted boats and ships traversing stormy seas or sheltering in tree lined harbours. As each piece is handmade and painted they all have their own character.
