Anna Curston - Artist 

I am an abstract painter and space artist, working predominantly with acrylic paint on wood and canvas. My work explores astronomy through the medium of abstract painting.  It is a celebration of my two passions: Art and Space. My work aims to bridge the gap between art and science and inspire people to get excited by both, not just separately, but together. 

Born in Norfolk, I was accustomed to dark, clear skies growing up, and spent much of my time looking up at the stars - even saving up to buy my own telescope. Seeing Saturn for the first time through my telescope with it's beautiful rings is an experience I will never forget. 

I came to university originally to study Astrophysics, but a lack of confidence temporarily made me fall out of love with astronomy and I switched to Fine Art. The subject switch did wonders for my confidence and now not only have I rediscovered my love for the stars, but I am using my paintings as a way to delve deeper into the subject and, I hope, inspire others to discover the wonder and joy of space too.

I hope you'll stick around so we can enjoy the joys of art and astronomy together. I post regular blogs on here (usually at least bi-weekly) and you can enjoy more regular updates by following the link below to my Instagram account! 

Art and Science are for everyone.
