Anna Leyland is a contemporary New Zealand artist and has successfully exhibited in over 30 exhibitions since 2001.
Utilising pattern making and symbolism, her works invoke conversations relating to the celebration of diversity and multiculturalism within Aotearoa. Her work features in many galleries throughout New Zealand and in private collections all across the world.
Anna’s works are directly influenced by the multicultural heritage of Anna and her son (Fijian, Wallisian, Futnaan, Scottish, Hungarian, English and Kiwi).
“I have taken personal symbols and patterns from these different cultures and developed into my own, which then tell my story. My works are culturally diverse and inherently attract a diverse audience…”
Anna will have works in one of the eight houses on the Tour, as well as The Gallery, located in the Old Boys’ Pavilion.
