Anita Inverarity resides in the north east of Scotland, an area littered with standing stones and castles, brimming with magic and the inspirations of both coast and countryside.
Describing her work as “Universal Folk” she heavily borrows from folk art, fairy tales and fables to thread a mystical dance through the old traditions of the northern hemisphere.
Anita's highly detailed drawings have been exhibited extensively in the UK and international venues, which celebrate illustrative fine art and pop surreal genres.
Highlights have included inclusion in shows with the National Trust for Scotland and our National Galleries and Museums on several occasions.
In 2016 Anita and her partner moved into an old farmhouse near the coast, which is being renovated into a home gallery and studio, incorporating international group shows & solo collaborations. The Inverarity Gallery launched in February 2017.
“I draw from a place of stillness and deeper connection, in every line there is a understanding and silent commune with the internal and the eternal. I have many interests and influences but always return to a simple decorative beauty which is bestowed with my own personal language, dipping into the mystical imaginings within- Anita"
