Antonia studied photography in Kent (’93 – ’95) then printmaking at Somerset College of Art & Design. She went on to Slade in London for a course in painting and then spent the next six years deep in the heart of Somerset where she painted passionately, her work dedicated to her love of wildlife and the countryside.
In 2001 Antonia moved her studio to Southern Spain where she lived on a self-sufficient small-holding. This allowed her the time to learn her lessons, to paint freely and perfect her own style of painting. Her dreamlike pictures reflect her diverse lifestyle and her vivid appreciation of colour and light owe a lot to her early years spent in Oman and her extensive travels since.
Antonia now has her main studio in London and has exhibited her work most recently at Somerset Arts Week, at the Penzance Arts Club and the Anita Gallery in Shoreditch, London. She has recently spent some time painting in Norway and her next major exhibition in Oslo, will show her impressions of this beautiful, rugged coastline and their beloved Norwegian flag.
Antonia also illustrates and photographs for Patricia Lim’s successful series of books published by the Oxford University Press which include “Hong Kong’s Cultural Heritage – The New Territories” and “Hong Kong & Kowloon”. Her work has been featured in the business magazine “going Public” in addition to several national newspapers.
