Anita Bentley

Anita Bentley was born in Adelaide, SA. Her interest and ability in art showed at an early age however she was encouraged to pursue an academic education, rather than artistic, which ultimately lead to working in the field of civil engineering and project management in various consultancy practices for many years. In 1992 Anita graduated from the University of South Australia with a Master of Business Administration (MBA). In 2002 Anita had a career change from engineering management to seriously pursue her life’s ambition to be a professional artist. Anita is a representational artist working primarily in water colour. From 2003 to 2006 Anita exhibited her works from her own Sundew Studio Gallery, at Ashbourne. Now residing in the Hutt Street Precinct in Adelaide, and with recent overseas trips to France, Greece, the UK, Italy and Türkiye, Anita has added street and urban scenes to her list of favourite subjects to paint.
