Anna Toppin

Anna Toppin graduated from Wimbledon College of Art with a Fine Arts Degree and an ambition to work as a set designer in TV. 
Helping to develop the interiors of a “palace” designed by her husband in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, she was invited by the BBC to join them as a Holiday Design Assistant. This led a short contract at London Weekend TV to work on a Dennis Potter series, this turned into a career spanning 12 years on programmes as diverse as Blind Date, Dempsey and Makepeace through to the first series of Poirot. 

Deciding to move back to Suffolk to raise her daughters she joined a part time etching course at Hampstead School of art, then discovered Sudbourne Park. 

The Kimono and costume influenced her work after an Art Safari to Japan. A trip to Cambodia and recently Sao Paulo add to the mix. 

Current work is an eclectic mix of subject but colour and decorative appeal are always of prime concern.
