As an international designer, Anna Weatherley’s career has included designing and manufacturing couture fashion, home furnishings, and printed textiles. In the early 1990’s she established a studio in Budapest, Hungary where she trained a group of exceptionally talented painters to create her collection of hand-painted porcelain. Only the best painters are capable of both mixing the colors and painting the delicate details of her designs. Each piece is not solely a pretty painted object, but also a work of art. Her designs are inspired by the early botanical illustrators and flower painters of the 18th Century Europe such as Redoute, Hooker, and Ehret. Dutch still-life paintings have also been a source of her design inspiration.
