Anna Glover designs wallpapers and textiles as well as operating as an interior designer. Her designs are begun by hand and manipulated on a computer before being printed digitally. Her colour palettes are very tonal, perhaps because some of her motifs are quite unusual (monkeys leaping through modernist architecture, squids and shellfish in space, aqautic scenes displaced in amongst barbara hepworth like sculptures) and therefore a strong colour palette might might them too out there.

She cites Japanese wood block and ink drawings as inspiration and you can definitely recognise a botanical artistic style in her work. which is quite classical and traditional in its nature. Some of her designs contain repeats, others rise up from the floor like wallpaper did in the 1930s with all busyness focused on skirtings to the waist, a bit like a garden growing up your walls.
