Anna Sharpe is an experienced alpinist and her innate love of the mountain landscape is clearly demonstrated in her work. The Lake District holds a special place within her creative practice and has lived here since childhood.
Her passion for mountainous landscapes has taken her across the world from climbing peaks in the Alps, to trekking passes in the Himalayas. Each holding a unique power, beauty and personality. Anna's work recongises an interaction between a physical and spiritual connection to our beloved mountain landscapes
"I now recognise both climbing and art to be ways of interacting with the ‘more-than-human’ world. In a time when the environment is frequently mistreated as a resource, I look to reawaken our physical and spiritual connections to it."
