Anita Bowerman is based in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, and has worked as a professional artist for 20 years. Prior to that she worked as a buyer at Liberty’s of London.
She is well known for her vivid use of colour in her paintings and watercolours, and her intricate paper cut work. Paper cutting is the art of cutting intricate detail using a scalpel to create artworks which are completely unique.
In 2015 Anita was appointed the Official Artist of the Tour de Yorkshire and created official art work for Welcome to Yorkshire. She presented a laser-cut stainless steel artwork commemorating the Tour de Yorkshire to the Lord Mayor of York and Christian Prudhomme at the Mansion House at the Eve of Tour celebration May 2015. Her paper-cuts of the 2014 Tour de France route in Yorkshire were an instant success.
Anita is the artist in residence at Hazlewood Castle and has recently featured in regional press including the Yorkshire Post, York Press and ITV news. Prestigious commissions include bespoke artworks for Virgin Money, Yorkshire Air Ambulance Charity, the Grammar School at Leeds, William & Victoria’s restaurant, Ashville College and Hydram Sheet Metal. Anita’s work can currently be seen at Hazlewood Castle, William & Victoria’s in Harrogate, and the Flying Duck in Ilkley. Stockists of her work include the Mercer Art Gallery in Harrogate and Weaverbird, Ilkley.
