Originally from Dublin and based in Athlone for ten years, Anna Boles is an artist, painter and a graphic designer.
Her commissioned painting “The Bermuda Triangle” featuring Ireland’s oldest pub “The Sean’s Bar” was well-received by people all over the town. When invited as a guest on our show “Coffee Morning”, she talked about her passion for art, exploring variation in her painting styles from portraits to landscapes and transitioning from oil paints to acrylics. Mum of three, she shared how motherhood helps her to stay inspired and how her children have inherited her creative talent.

Her artwork shows her fascination with exaggerated vibrant colors and tiny details as her paintbrush has magnificently captured the true essence of Athlone and it’s historical sites.
