Course Created by Anne Edwards
I am a professional artist with a Masters Degree from the Royal College of Art in London UK. I have taught in Colleges and Universities throughout my career and this has informed and enriched my own work.

I now divide my time between London and Crete / Greece where I have a studio and I show my paintings in Athens in addition to having a number of private clients.
