After graduating from Manchester Metropolitan University with a BA (Hons) in Textiles, Anna Creighton became increasingly fascinated be the rapidly development of Manchester City Center and its suburbs. Swapping her embroidery thread, for pencil, charcoal and paint, Creighton began documenting, villages, towns and cityscapes with equal fervor. Choosing the medium to suit the represented atmosphere and environment Anna created her sumptuous gouache pieces to perfectly capture the romance of Paris; her intricate textile embellished watercolours to encapsulate chocolate box country villages, whilst her raw sketch-like mixed media pieces represented Manchester’s industrial heritage. Anna Creighton is currently working on a series inspired by a collection of U.S Cities. Her work has been by collected by several high profile television personalities, and has been commissioned by a number of large property developers. Creighton has received media acclaim, including coverage from the BBC.
