Originally trained as an electrical engineer, Anna made the transition from scientist to artist with the enlightened instruction of a number of local and nationally recognized artists. Her paintings have been included in numerous juried and invitational shows in galleries throughout Vermont. She received the Ruth Bottomley Award for Watercolor in the Northern Vermont Artist Association’s 70th Annual Juried Show. She has been listed in Who’s Who in America and Who’s Who of American Women. Each of the paintings displayed under glass is an original work painted on Arches watercolor paper using primarily Golden fluid acrylic paints. The works on canvas are also originals painted on Winsor and Newton canvas using Golden fluid acrylic paints. They are mounted in solid maple floater frames that she makes herself.
When creating my colorful paintings of the Vermont landscape, I use my memories and photos of places I have seen along with a healthy dose of imagination. My intention is always to capture how I feel about what I see – the actual arrangement of buildings, trees, hills and such is not as important. I especially like to play with the colors of the sky, mountains, and water on Lake Champlain.
