Buzzards are a familiar sight in the Chew Valley, an area just south of Bristol at the foothills of the Mendips, where I raised my family. My children are now grown and flown, so Eyrie and the connotations of nests, riding life's thermals and freedom to explore the world, seemed a fitting subject. I love a bit of sparkle, so the tree is printed in a shiny metallic copper pigment that catches the light and I have printed one of my blue chiffon skies behind.

Discover new works by Anna Harley available to buy online and in our art gallery. Anna Harley is a professional fine art screen-printer, making prints at Spike Print Studio in Bristol. She has a Masters Degree in Multi-Disciplinary Printmaking and lives in South Bristol. Her handmade prints are produced in limited editions, so each print is an original artwork, not a reproduction of an artwork made in a different medium. She says, "the screenprinting process suits my practice, because it allows me to build images in fine layers of ink, printing layer upon layer until I am happy with the final print. I use a combination of drawing, digital photography and objects directly exposed on the screen, to create these individual layers. I enjoy the tension this creates in my images – is the print based on a drawing or photograph? Is it attached fabric, pencil marks or ink? While engaged in the creative process, I try to stay open minded about how the finished print will look, to allow the print to make itself – print is an extremely process led way of making art and allowing the unexpected to happen and taking advantage of these happy accidents allows the work to stay fresh and exciting." She is inspired by how it feels to be outside, tree silhouettes, passing seasons, the weather, and the sky and how it changes from sunrise to evening. "I love things that sparkle and twinkle. I often use metallic pigments and, in a move that fully embraced my inner kitsch, I have recently made a snow print using white glitter. " Anna’s work is rooted within the Landscape tradition, while the fabric textures in her prints are an echo of her Scandinavian Arts and Crafts background and nomadic childhood. Anna has recently exhibited in the Summer Exhibition at the Royal Academy and The Mall Gallery in London and is represented by galleries in both England and Sweden.
