North Norfolk District Council is showcasing the work of local artist Anna Ovenden in the First Floor Gallery at its Cromer offices from September 18th until November 2nd.


Anna is mainly known for the ‘Arabella Collections’, she is a self-taught artist who was born and educated in Malaysia before she and her husband moved to Norfolk 19 years ago.

The 1st Floor Gallery is open to the public 8.30am-5pm on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays; 10am-5pm on Wednesdays; and 8.30am-4.30pm on Fridays.


Anna’s latest collections of landscape paintings are influenced by the big sky and constant changes along the Norfolk coast. She works mainly in acrylics and water colours and lately has taken up textile and fibre, which is incorporated in her mixed media art work.

She believes that: “Art is the creation of what the artist sees” and she applies this mantra to her latest collection that will be featured in Cromer.


North Norfolk District Council seeks to offer free opportunities to local artists to display their work in the well-lit gallery, and in turn provides staff and visitors the opportunity to see a variety of artists’ work. Six exhibitions are held annually.
