Scottish born Artist Anna Johnson was responsible for creating Green Door Printmaking Studio, which is Derby’s only open access printmaking workshop for practicing artists. Anna was trained as a painter at Edinburgh College of Art, after which she worked for 14 years as an Art Therapist.
Moving to Derby, she completed a BA (hons) in Illustration, and studied at Edinburgh Printmaker's Workshop with Alfons Bytautas. Her work is now concentrated upon her life experience using the different techniques of environmentally sound etching. Her Etchings are held in private collections and recently the University of Catania's archives.
