Born in Shetland in 1984, Anna has spent most of her life in the Scottish Borders.
She first came to attention of the general public with her sell-out degree show at Dundee's Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design in 2005.

She won the top prize of £20,000 in the annual Jolomo Award in 2007. This the largest prize award in Scotland,and is awarded to Scottish Landscape Artists.
She also received the Royal Scottish Academy Landscape Award from the RSA Student Exhibition.

Her very distinctive work, often exploring wastelands, abandoned buildings and barren pieces of scrub-land, has attracted much media attention.

"This gifted young artist has spent the past two winters working at Joan Eardley's clifftop studio at Catterline. The results are very different from Eardley's wild, densely painted seascapes: cooler, more cerebral, with an almost icy range of colours. Yet something of Eardley's response to nature as an untameable force is echoed in King's bleakly attractive images of post-industrial landscapes: empty feral places where nature is slowly reclaiming the land."
FINANCIAL TIMES REVIEW 12 April 2008, by Jackie Wullschlager, chief art critic of the Financial Times.

She featured on the BBC Coast Series, when Alice Roberts visited her, and explored what drew Joan Eardley to Catterline.

She was the featured artist in a Blackberry advertisement which shows William Ramsay, founder of the Affordable Art Fair, visiting the artist and then using his BlackBerry Torch to share her paintings with his colleagues.
