In late 2005 Anita was artist in residence at the Centre d’Art Marnay, France and was awarded the Fondation Ténot grant. Her studio in the 17th century chateau overlooked the river Seine on one side and the village of Marnay-sur-Seine on the other. It was an inspiring environment and she worked alongside artists and writers from all over the world. She created a photographic essay and a large suite of paintings that explore the mirage of changing reflections, patterns and colours on the Seine.
