Anna Leyland is a contemporary New Zealand artist. Utilising pattern making and symbolism, her works invoke conversations relating to the celebration of diversity and multiculturalism within Aotearoa.
Her works are directly influenced by the multicultural heritage of Anna and her son; Scottish, Hungarian, English, Fijian, Wallisian and Kiwi. “I have taken personal symbols and patterns from these different cultures and developed into my own, which then tell my story. My works are culturally diverse and inherently attract a diverse audience..."
With her distinctive style, she has had many corporate commissions including works for Nespresso, Orcon and Sofitel Queenstown.
