Anna Bekiari was a self-taught artist with talent in literature.

In painting, she used colour in an expressionistic manner. Her landscapes are organized around large areas of vivid colour in a naïve almost childish manner.

In her sculptural work, whether portrait or figural composition, the power of expression is conveyed in an abstract way in order to reveal the feeling and inner world of her subject matter.

Her work can be found in The National Gallery of Greece, The Municipal Gallery of Athens, The National Bank of Greece and many other public and private collections
