Dr Anna Walker is an artist and writer who has exhibited her work internationally. She was awarded an MA in Fine Art from Southampton University in 1998, and a certificate in Psychotherapy from CBPC, Cambridge, in 2010. An interest in the effects of trauma on the body, developed during her training as a psychotherapist, led her to PhD research in Arts and Media at Plymouth University, which she completed in 2017. She is a contributing researcher to the Transtechnology Research group at Plymouth University. Her research continues to balance the autoethnographic with the critical, utilising personal experiences to facilitate a greater understanding of trauma, history and its wider cultural implications.
