Anthea Craigmyle grew up in Chiswick, London, at St Nicholas’ Church on Chiswick Mall where her father was the vicar, overlooking the Thames, and it is likely this view was painted from the family home.

At school she was taught art by Henry Moore’s wife, Irina, and aged seventeen, went to study at Chelsea School of Art where she studied under Julian Trevelyan, who was also a close neighbour.
