Anna Ventura



Artist biography

Anna Ventura artistArtist and designer Anna Ventura started her creative career in the early 2000s in Barcelona. There, she developed her artistic skills with foundation studies specilising in Arts. Soon after, she completed the bachelors degree of Fine Arts & Graphic Design at the University of Barcelona. Then, in 2009, she visited Devon when she was invited to undertake a final project in Illustration at the University of Plymouth.

Anna fell in love with the area of the South Hams in Devon straight away and decided to stay permanently. She spent years creating a portfolio of work, inpired by the her surroundings, finally showing her work outside academia in 2013. The artist has successfully exhibited in the Devon scene since then with works in several galleries and independent exhibitions.

In 2018 she opened Tidal Gallery in Kingsbridge. She had a vision of a clean curated space where professional local artists could exhibit and be represented fairly. This gave her career a boost, and she now works full time from her studio at the back of the Gallery. Her work is varied, but focuses on her stongest quality, intricate drawing. She feels constrantly inspired by the Devon landscape, fauna and flora and it has become a recurrent theme.
