An artist now, Anna Grayson started off as a scientist and broadcaster. She made the switch to full time artist only a few years ago and hasn’t looked back.

Anna is best known now for her pastiche photographs of famous works of art.

But she also works with ceramics and print making.

The Moaning Geezer
A photographic pastiche of Leonardo’s famous Mona Lisa. The truth is that the female model couldn’t make the shoot so my husband had to stand in, and did a rather good job!

This is one of two pastiche photographs that was  accepted to hang in last year’s South West Academy Exhibition in Exeter.

I quite often use myself as the model as in this re-make of Magritte’s Son of Man. I have a shutter delay of 10 seconds on the camera - it can be a bit of a rush sometimes, and uncomfortable when holding an apple in place with a chopstick!

A collection of my pastiches are on permanent display at the Artizan Gallery in Lucius Street, Torquay

My Allegory of Modern Marriage (after Jan Van Eyck has also been exhibited at the Royal Academy in London, and received a commendation in the South West Academy.
