A former Arran islander, now based in Amsterdam, watched in horror last week as her art studio went up in smoke.
Banner readers may remember that Anna Keen was brought up on Arran, attending Kilmory Primary School and Arran High School. She left the island to study art in Paris and went on in her successful career to live in Rome and Venice.
For some time she has been living and working in her large art studio in Amsterdam but last Tuesday 43-year-old Anna had a shock when she opened the door of her studio.
