My name is Anna Brewin and I moved from Kent to Huddersfield in 1991 to study a BSc in Textile Design. After graduating I continued designing printed Textile Designs for furnishings and I started expanding my portfolio into other areas including Surface Pattern, Graphics and Corporate Design. In 2018 an opportunity arose for me to start developing my artwork under my brand, Amanya. This would bring my different skills in Surface pattern, Drawing, Painting, Lettering and Graphics into my varied portfolio. My artwork is created through various means: drawing in pencil and pen; painting in watercolour, gouache, and inks, using pastels to create texture and sometimes painting onto silk too. I traditionally created everything I did on paper, but now use a combination of scanned artwork, photographs and Photoshop, Illustrator and Indesign to work on ideas and to create the designs.
Please bear with me with my website! I am in the process of getting everything uploaded on it which is taking time. If there are things you can’t purchase yet please let me know and I’ll prioritise them.
For those of you that don't know about Print on Demand, the plain products are stocked by the suppliers and are only produced when someone orders something. That means there isn't an access of stock and the minimum order is one. The fulfilment centre is chosen depending on where the customer lives, cutting down on travel costs and excess so a great benefit to the environment.
