Anita Klein’s painting, prints and drawing are intimate, joyful celebrations of everyday living with her family. Through her confident use of line, space and vibrant colours, Klein captures ordinary moments of daily life that we all recognise, and imbues them with a grand simplicity. Rendered with humour, sensitivity and beauty, Klein’s work forms an archive of small, personal moments of her life and her role as wife and mother – depicting personal memories that are universally understood.
Anita Klein was born in Sydney, Australia in 1960 and moved to London with her mother and sister when she was eleven years old. Klein studied at Chelsea School of Art and Slade School of Art, where she was awarded the Henrique Scholarship, and is a Fellow and Past President of the Royal Society of Painter Printmakers.
