Find out what it’s all about

There are 4 ways I teach

Online Paint Alongs

These are videos of my Paint Alongs – edited, step by step classes, complete with extra notes and printable guides.

You can purchase these individually or simply join the Shiny Happy Art Club and save $$$.

Demonstration Collections

Each month I choose a new (often eclectic!) theme and art supply and paint/sketch between 6 and 12 artworks.

These are filmed live, in real time, and I chat about my thinking and supplies. It might just get you sketching!

Chickens Sketch


Sometimes I share time lapses as I paint artworks, to inspire you and whet your appetite for creativity!

Check out all the Shiny Happy Art inspiration on Instagram, Facebook, TikTok (that one’s a bit new) and YouTube

In Person

I regularly host Art Holidays in Queensland, and sometimes overseas. I also occasionally run local art workshops for adults and/or children

Hi, I’m Anna,

Your artist + guide

I’m a colourful painter who lives in a white brick house in Toowoomba, Australia, with Maeby the Studio Dog and my two younger kids.

I’ve always loved to draw. That some people think they “can’t even draw a stick figure“ makes me very sad. And anyway, stick figures are overrated!

Being able to pick up a pencil or brush and confidently draw or paint is a fabulous way of living. It’s a gateway to Creative Problem Solving and that’s important for all of us.

Another bonus – Art Friends are the best friends.

Anna, your artist and guide

An amazing teacher

Anna – you’re an amazing teacher! So lovely! You used the “think aloud” strategy better than anyone I have encountered (I was a teacher and administrator for 37 years, so I’ve seen a lot of teaching). This was fun!

My skills and confidence grow every time…

I am loving the Shiny Happy Drawing Course, Anna. Congratulations on such a wonderfully creative and informative program. The way you’ve differentiated, to accommodate participants’ time and experience is fantastic.

Jane Roper

I can’t stop!

Anna is a natural teacher. She scaffolds the learning and I have so much more confidence to draw and paint now. I can’t stop.

My skills and confidence grow every time…

I have done many of Anna’s courses and have seen my skills and confidence grow every time. I highly recommend her classes.
