About Anna Didier
I was born in England and moved to Barbados in 1998. I studied at The University of Exeter in the U.K and have a degree in Art and Education.
From the moment I arrived in Barbados I was captured by the sunshine and how the sunshine illuminated all of flowers, fauna and scenery and how it brought alive colour in everything. I tried to express this 'happy' feeling in my paintings. My paintings are bold, colourful and expressive. My paintings continue to sell both privately and in the galleries in Barbados!
I have been teaching for over 20 years. I have been the head of an Art department in the UK and taught Art and Craft in a private school in Barbados. I have regularly been invited into people's homes to lead families through 'group' paintings and individual. I have had ongoing after school art clubs in my house and I have run my own beach camps for kids using the resources on the beach to create Art.
Many adults and children have been in my home over the course of many years, enjoying me teach the basics of painting in a step by step way. I am passionate about sharing the beauty of Barbados through my paintings and I truly believe that everyone is able to paint.
I look forward to meeting all those who sign up to The Lush Brush Barbados. I know you will enjoy the experience.
Though I haven't had the pleasure of supporting Anna in her Lush Brush venture yet, I had a fantastic time at a painting party instructed by Anna earlier this year. I went home with a Turtle painting that is currently on display in my home office in Toronto! I'd recommed her to anyone looking to have a fun time with friends and go home with a lovely tropical painting that she leads you through easily. My friends and I laughed all the way through at what we thought were going to be disastrous efforts but they all came together so well in the end :) Great fun, thanks Anna!

I was one of the participants this past Tuesday evening, at your class at Tiki Bar.
I wanted to thank you again and tell you what a great class it was!!! I truly enjoyed it, and I cannot thank you enough for your personalized care and attention.
I am usually perfectionist and the same painting would probably take me 5 days to finish :) So I was incredibly surprised that I had it ready in 2 hours!
You are truly an inspiring teacher! (April 2016)
