Alanna Eakin is a British born painter currently living and working in London who graduated with a BA in Fine Art from Central Saint Martinís College of Art and Design.
It is those tacky, kitsch objects people keep on their mantelpieces or often disregarded and forgotten about on a shelf in a junk store that has initiated Alanna's current body of work. Her sensitivity towards these ornaments brings out the playful side to her imagination allowing her to capture the essence of the charactersí personalities. It is a fascination with the idea that most of the time people find these objects somewhat hideous and vulgar ridiculous and then chose to either love or disregard them. Alanna gives her characters a new dignity.
