Anna Kennedy is a self taught artist who lives and works from her own studio in Dublin, where she also runs Anna's Art Group in Sandyford.
I have loved art since I was a child and was always fascinated by the realistic work of the 'Old Masters'. Portraiture is my first love, and I get inspiration from studying the works of many artists in the National Gallery where I would spend hours lost in another world. I have also studied portraiture in Hong Kong. The thrill of having a gift to produce on canvas the image and feelings of another person is unbelievable, and something that I treasure. I feel my portraits are more than just a painting, the connection between the viewer and the portrait is so real. Anna specialises in Portrait Commissions her work hangs in public and private collections both in Ireland and the U.S.A.
