About Anna Roberts

Anna Roberts is an artist and illustrator based in Yorkshire, UK. Her photo-realistic works epitomize the simple beauty in everyday moments. Using pastels, scenes and objects are illuminated through her delicate handling of light and shadow, with a unique and considered approach to materials and method. Each piece is hand-painted in pastel on cotton paper. 


“I like to focus on the quiet things that I feel deserve attention. I use soft pastel on cotton paper, emphasizing simple scenes and objects with strong graphic compositions and my delicate handling of light and reflections.” - Anna Roberts
