Mixed Media, Textile Arts, Block Printing, Millinery Artist
British artist Anthea Brown has lived and worked in Venice, California for over 30 years. Southern California’s ocean, deserts, plants and wildlife have been a strong influence on her art. Animals, especially dogs, are a favorite subject in her textile collage, pillows, cards, prints and Chinese birth sign block prints.
Anthea was a milliner with a hat shop in Venice for 20 years, selling hats to stores throughout the United States. She has recently rediscovered her hand-carved hat blocks and her love of making hats. A selection of her hats is now available at Ten Women Gallery.
