About Anna Sweet

Born in 1987, Anna currently lives and works in Key West, Florida.

Anna was a student at New York's School of Visual Arts until the age of 20, when she left and moved to London to work for her biggest inspiration, world renowned fashion photographer Rankin. Soon after joining Rankin's studio Anna developed her first series of underwater work, which is now represented in galleries worldwide.

In the years since, Anna's photography has been featured in numerous publications and art shows. Her solo exhibitions include Spectrum Miami during Miami's Art Basel week and Imagine Gallery in NYC.

Anna's work has recently become the face of a new building in Miami's Wynwood Art's District. Her image, Eve, is the face and name of the new 19-story residential structure.

Over the last year Anna has developed a new body of work "Liquid Waves." Inspired by the many beaches Sweet has scouted throughout her years shooting underwater. These original works are created by mixing resin and a combination of acrylic pigments and minerals. The colors are manipulated and spread across wooden art panels producing effects of lacing and webbing to mimic the serenity and life of the ocean. Each piece is layered with levels of color and translucent resin providing the viewer with a stunning three dimensional representation of the sea from above. Custom shapes, sizes, and surfboards available.

Anna has moved from the Big Island of Hawaii to Key West to focus on her new flagship gallery and love of the ocean.
