Anna Bartlett

Contemporary Painter

Anna is a contemporary painter who lives in a very long house on top of foggy Mount Kynoch in Toowoomba.

Happy colours are her thing and the finishing coat of shiny, gloss varnish is her favourite part of the art process. Inspired by Matisse and Ken Done, her paintings are colourful and illustrative, often featuring flowers and birds.

Anna has also completed over ten murals for the Toowoomba Hospital and almost ten for Breastscreen Toowoomba.
As well as painting originals, Anna runs Shiny Happy Art in Toowoomba and offers very popular ‘Painting Parties’ in her studio and online, all of which are perfect for beginners. She also teaches drawing, brush lettering and watercolour illustration, as well as one and two day workshops on topics including flowers and colour.
Anna’s book, ‘Painting Party’, was published by Northlight Books, USA, in May 2015. It is available on her website, shinyhappyart.com, and on amazon.com
Anna is also a mum to four fun kids and a wife to a very tolerant husband.


​It’s a teacup or vase full of flowers, that becomes the most fabulous, bright, unique artwork. Include extras like pets, food and tools, and you’ll have an artwork that’s perfect for you and your home.

Each kit includes 2 x A4 printed watercolour pages (featuring my drawings of cups, vases and flowers – you use as many or as few as you wish), an A3 sheet of blank watercolour paper (for extra flowers and as a backing page), at least two patterned papers and printed instructions. You can take home anything that’s left over and even make another picture at home!

Includes Light Refreshments
