" My art practice often reflects a personal narrative with form, colour and expression: all playing an equal part in the completion of the work."
Josepha van den Anker has been exhibiting her work nationally and internationally since 1976 and over the course of her career, has been the recipient of various awards and grants both in Canada and Ireland. Her work is represented in numerous private and public collections.
Born in Nort Brabant, Holland, Josepha attended The Ontario College of Art, and is a Fine Arts, Honour's Graduate and the recipient of the Forsyth Scholarship for "EXCELLENCE IN PAINTING 1976".
Living in Holland and Ireland for several years, in 2005 van den Anker moved back to Canada and Ontario is now, contentedly once again home.
"...in all the arts there are usually two things going on at the same time: the desire to make it new, and a continuing conversation with the past".
