About Anna Leyland
Anna Leyland is a contemporary New Zealand artist. 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 her and her son; Fijian, Wallisian, Futunaan, 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..."
With her distinctive style, she has already had many commissions including corporate works for Nespresso, The Auckland City Council, Orcon, The Big Hoot and Sofitel Queenstown. After a successful 4th solo show in November 2018, she is now moving her work further internationally.
