Anna Zinkeisen studied drawing and anatomy before winning a scholarship to the Royal Academy Schools in 1916 to study sculpture – exhibiting at the RA in 1919 and winning the Landseer Award in 1920 and 1921. On leaving the RA, she worked with her sister Doris on murals for the 'Queen Mar'y and the 'Queen Elizabeth' liners and produced notable portraits. She also provided illustrations for several books, including 'Sophy Cassmajor' by Margery Sharp, published in 1934.
