VanderSpuy-Art is the website dedicated to displaying the works of Artist Anthea Ashton (Van der Spuy).
I was born in the town of Beaufort West in South Africa. My memories of my place of birth and the various parts of South Africa where I grew up have influenced my preferred palette and styles.
I re-married in 2011 and moved over to Dorset, England to start this exciting new faze of my life. This opened up a whole new set of influences and inspiration for my art and allowed me to explore new techniques and ideas.
Working mainly with Oils, I paint on various surfaces and love to experiment with textures by introducing diverse materials into my creations. I also work with Acrylics to achieve the desired results.
