Anita Bowerman, a celebrated artist with over two decades of experience, has been a prominent figure in Yorkshire’s artistic scene. Nestled in the heart of Harrogate, her creations adorn the walls of Dove Tree Art Gallery & Studio, a charming space dedicated to showcasing her vibrant artwork.

Gallery visitors are welcome to immerse themselves in Anita’s creations during the following hours: Thursday and Friday from 10 am to 3.30 pm, and Saturday from midday to 4 pm. However, for a personalized experience, it’s advisable to reach out beforehand at 07760 157046, as Anita might be out capturing the essence of Yorkshire on her canvas. Private appointments can also be arranged outside the regular opening hours.

Anita’s artistic journey is a testament to her deep-rooted connection to Yorkshire’s landscapes, reflected in her brightly colored watercolor and acrylic paintings, many of which capture the essence of Yorkshire’s scenery. Her diverse portfolio extends beyond paintings to include illustrations, paper cuts, and striking stainless-steel artworks.

Born in Leeds, Anita’s childhood amidst the lush countryside and fauna laid the foundation for her lifelong passion for artistry. Her keen eye for color, intricate detail, and design was honed during her tenure in the fashion industry, where she lent her talent to renowned brands like Burberry and Liberty’s London.

For the past 25 years, Anita has dedicated herself to her craft, with her works finding a home at The Dove Tree Art Gallery since its inception in 2011. Beyond the confines of her studio, Anita uses her art as a vehicle for social good, particularly during challenging times like the pandemic.

Anita’s philanthropic endeavors include an art installation for Yorkshire Cancer Research’s ‘put the boot into it’ campaign, featuring 191 stainless steel cut-out boots, and commissioned works for Continued Care, honoring frontline carers. Her collaborations extend to producing iconic Christmas cards for Yorkshire Air Ambulance, featuring the picturesque landscapes of Yorkshire.

An innovative approach to her craft led Anita to incorporate natural elements like fallen twigs, moss, and leaves dipped in acrylic paint into her paintings. This distinctive style caught the attention of The RHS Garden Harlow Carr, where she served as Artist-in-Residence, crafting a series of twelve monthly paintings.

Her artistic prowess has garnered widespread acclaim, earning her the title of the First Official Artist for the Tour de Yorkshire 2015. Notable commissions include a stainless-steel sculpture for the President of the UCI in 2019 and a striking 1.5-meter-wide sculpture of antique cutlery adorning the walls of Virgin Money Sheffield.

Anita’s artwork transcends borders, captivating audiences worldwide and adorning the spaces of individuals, collectors, and organizations alike. With each brushstroke, she continues to weave narratives that celebrate the beauty of Yorkshire and beyond, leaving an indelible mark on the world of art.
