Textile Designer / Creative Director of Anna Glover Design Studio
Anna founded her multi-award winning design studio in 2014, specialising in bespoke wallpapers for luxury interiors. The studio works with interior designers, architects and private clients to create spaces that tell a story. Their distinctive aesthetic has evolved from Glover’s background in artworks for fashion, as well as her use of traditional hand painting techniques. In 2014 Anna collaborated with Patrick Lewis Architects on their project at Brackenbury Road. This Spring Anna has launched an exclusive clothing collection with H&M!
