Anna Jane Wilson was born and raised in England, UK. Come her late teens and early twenties, with family emigrating to Australia, modelling became her vehicle for travelling. Anna came to temporarily reside in and experience the delights of art and culture in Paris- France and Barcelona-Spain, before settling permanently in Australia at the age of 26.
Anna’s high school was predominantly academic leaving little avenue for creativity. On leaving school, her exposure to art and culture on her travels triggered her to write intermittently, her first poem written in 1993 at the age of 22, is her now own infamous poem entitled, ‘Energy.”
After settling in Sydney, Australia and completing a Diploma in Business Hospitality Management, Anna became a restaurant and functions manager. Four years later and with a sense of apathy setting in, on a weekend visit to Melbourne, she decided to pack up and move there in search of a mini Europe with a yearning to re-ignite her inner poet.
The birth and death of her first born in 2005 at the age of 33, catapulted Anna onto the path of self love teaching her the valuable lesson of looking inwards and her inner poet became re enlivened. Anna then produced her first two books, one in poetry; “A Leap of Faith” (2011) and one with her art and accompanying poetry, “An Artist’s Story” (2013) .
In October 2006, Anna took over a wellness centre in her locality where she had been practicing since 2004 as a qualified massage therapist.
Come May 2015, she successfully sold her wellness centre, and undertook studies in psychology, namely an Advanced Diploma of Transpersonal Art Therapy and commenced the journey of self publishing her third book, Pandora’s Box.
Today, Anna is happily married and settled in Melbourne, Australia with her young family.
