Anna McKeever is an Irish Artist based on the Ormeau Road in Belfast. Predominantly a palette knife painter, she is inspired by both urban and rural Ireland; and her work is a celebration of the spirit and warmth of the Irish landscape and its people. She is also influenced by Celtic Mythology. When she's not painting Anna works as a medical doctor specialising Public Health Medicine, particularly lifestyle intervention and preventative strategies. In today's episode we talk about:
  • Anna's earliest memories
  • Juggling the medical side of life with the artistic
  • Moving away from NI for 10 years (and coming home again!)
  • The role art plays in society
  • And the greatest challenges/successes she's experienced along the way
