Anna Wheeler graduated from the National Art School in the year 2000.

She is a painter currently living in Darlinghurst who has had over 10 solo exhibitions since art school. She describes her painting as abstract figurative.She loves colour in her paintings and of course in her life!

Some of her favourite artists are Basquiat, Willem De Kooning, Chagall and Frida Kahlo. She says “I paint mainly from my imagination and my dreams of this wild world we live in! I let my brush do the talking. I use energetic brush strokes and wild colour. I like the paint thickly and richly layered and textured."

This current body of work has a number of influences such as Feminism, the Australian bushfires of 2020 and of course the current global pandemic Corona Virus.Her painting made this year “Pink Sphinx in Corona Times” is a dreamlike image of how suddenly the Corona Virus was “everywhere,surrounding all of us.The Sphinx is surrounded by Corona but yet she remains strong and beautiful.It is a painting saying there is hope.We will get through this..”

Anna has been a finalist in many group art prizes such as the Brett Whiteley Travelling Scholarship, Mosman Art Prize, Lloyd Rees Art Prize and Waverly Art Prize. She is in Australian collections as well as international collections such as France, England, China and Thailand.

Anna was exhibited in the International Women’s Day Prize at TAP GALLERY twice. She received 2nd prize one year and this year received 1st prize for the People’s Choice Award.
