Anita Granger was born in Toronto, Ontario, growing up in a small town just north of the city. She holds a B.F.A. Spec. Hons. from York University with a double specialization in Visual Art and Graphic Design. Granger embarked on a twenty-year career working extensively in design. Approximately seven years ago, she returned to her roots in painting and sculpture.
Granger has stated about her landscape paintings:
“I have a fundamental interest in plant and animal life, drawing much of my influence from nature. I tend to look within nature to find refuge, rather than seek shelter from it. My work channels the consideration of this relationship through a variety of narratives and metaphors expressive of human desires, in particular the need to find protection and a sense of connection.”
Granger has shown her work in a variety of group exhibitions throughout Ontario. She currently resides in Fergus, Ontario.
