Circuits de découverte d’Audierne - Tro Gwaien
Conception, création et réalisation de trois parcours illustrés sur les quartiers historiques, maritimes et ruraux d'Audierne et d'Esquibien.
In February 2021, Anna was commissioned by the Mairie of Audierne-Esquibien - Finistère - to create a map of the three walks around the towns. She was given 'carte blanche' to design and illustrate the historical, maritime and country circuits, working alongside specialists for the accompanying texts.
The published leaflets are available in the Offices de Tourisme du Cap Sizun.
In March 2020, France decided to put all its population in confinement in order to prevent the spread of the pandemic, Covid 19.
The Lockdown was severe and fines fell heavily on the population. We were allowed out of our homes, a few hundred metres only, once a day and for one hour maximum (plus all the necessary paperwork).
"I decided to start a series of paintings “Each day has a purpose; one day at a time” to try to ease the despair that we all encountered and to share them through Social Media. Finding a theme and an image for every day was a wonderful experience. Seeing people’s reactions confirmed the joy of communicating through art."
