Anne  Blankson-Hemans

Anne grew up in the West African country of Ghana and studied at the College of Art – Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, under some of the finest contemporary Ghanaian painters. She was mentored and tutored by Ato Delaquis, the renowned Ghanaian artist.

She moved to the UK and took a full time job working in IT. But, early in 2000 she returned to her real passion after setting up her own business making fine-art prints for artists and photographers. She has exhibited in the UK, the US and in Africa and her works are held in a number of collections in these countries.

Although she is highly qualified and the member of several professional artist societies, she feels that having come “full-circle”, the learning has only just began. In her figurative work, each subject captivates her. She wants to get into the minds of those she portrays. She uses vibrant colours, drawing on her African heritage. She enjoys the exquisite patterns of printed fabrics from which clothes are made, seeing rich patterns and colours and integrating them in her backgrounds.

Anne is an associate member of the Society of Women Artists and a member of the Northampton Town & County Art Society.
