Anna Clare Lees-Buckley

Anna Clare is a classically trained portrait painter who works mainly on commission from her St Paul’s Studio in Talgarth Road. After being awarded the art scholarship at Stowe School she continued her training at the Florentine atelier Charles H Cecil studios, undergoing a rigorous four years of education, practising the naturalistic tradition of ‘sight-size’.

In recent years she has derived great enjoyment from painting birds in motion. The complexity of catching the movement of a pair of hen harrier mid-flight about to snap up dinner or a grouse flying towards you, provide an interesting challenge.

She takes commissions in oil and charcoal. Her London studio always has a selection of current work which can be viewed by private appointment. Daisy, the English Bull Terrier, is often found at the studio, making a good studio companion and, on occasion, reluctant model.
