Anna McKay is an artist and illustrator based in Christchurch, New Zealand. Her distinctive digital style blurs the lines between painting and design, resulting in work that is beautifully graphic and highly emotive.
Women as subject matter has always interested Anna, and in each piece she endeavors to represent the multi-faceted aspects of the fairer sex.
A thinker and a feminist, each piece is designed to evoke feminine power and strength, while issues like contemporary gender interactions, male dominance and relationship imbalances also make appearances in her diverse portfolio. Pattern is a new area under exploration.
Passionate about art and all things visual, Anna operates the creative blog The Visual Female, where she showcases and comments on all subject matter relating to women.
