Annis Harrison is a multi-disciplinary artist who lives and works in London.
Of Swedish and Jamaican heritage, she adopted the UK as home after attending St Martins Art College.
Both in Sweden and in the UK, Annis has always occupied her own space, having a foot in more than one culture, more than one ethnicity, more than one language.
Neither outside nor inside.
Her art has always reflected this fascinating cultural duality.
