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.


Anna has designed a Painting Party subject based around Gum Blossoms or ‘Corymbia’ ficifolia just for you.

You’ll be starting with a black canvas and mono printing your own beautiful backgrounds before layering on branches, leaves and flowers. You’ll stand back and go “WOW” when you’ve finished this one, and then you’ll get to take it home – strung, varnished and ready to hang.

Ladies, you are welcome to bring a wine and enjoy this class with your girlfriends, mum or sisters.
