{around here} Anna Gwenllian & a giveaway

As with a lot of things these days, I first came across Anna Gwenllian and her work on Instagram.  Her illustrations are just bright, colourful and so beautiful!

See, I told you!

Tell us a bit about yourself and your work?

I’m Anna Gwenllian and I’m an artist/illustrator from North Wales. I studied art foundation at Coleg Menai in Bangor before going on to study Graphic Communication in Cardiff. I moved back up to north Wales a few years ago where I was drawing as a hobby and then gradually went on to creating my own little business. My drawings are quite colourful and I love to draw birds and buildings, which I then make into prints. I also take on commissions, and many of those have been of people’s homes, or sometimes a favourite view of theirs. I’ve recently started to create wedding stationery as well, which is a bit different from my usual work but I’ve enjoyed creating them and the design process involved so far!

Where do you get your inspiration from?

I get my inspiration from a lot of people and places really, outside in nature, books, art galleries and museums, on the internet and through social media. I love discovering new artists or creatives on instagram!

What’s your favourite thing to draw?

Definitely birds! And buildings. Two quite different things really. I like to draw many things, but those are the two main ones.

Is there anywhere else, other than your desk, where you like to sit and draw?

I’m usually by my desk most time when I draw, pretty boring! Sometimes on the sofa if I’m tired or unwell… but in the summer when the sun is shining I’ll sometimes go and draw outside (perks of working from home!).

Re the Giveaway – Explain a bit about it and why you have chosen this print.

I’ve chosen this Welsh ‘Teulu’ print with my drawing of a family of cute long-tailed tits as a giveaway as this is my newest print, and has been the most popular as well!
