Biography


Anita's long career in the custom design and construction of upholstered furnishings has transitioned into another art form, the fine art of oil painting.
At the age of 65, Anita picked up a paintbrush for the first time with the sole purpose of decorating her own home.  She repurposed her table saw and staple gun to stretch canvas and then set out to educate herself in all things "oil painting".  Then the pandemic struck.
A part-time hobby became a full-blown obsession.  To cope with lockdowns, she painted scenes involving loved ones and the many gifts of everyday life that were so dearly missed. 
Unexpectedly, she developed a fascination with modern Russian impressionism.  It's use of loose, yet deliberate brushwork, flamboyant color, thick and thin paint combinations and storytelling was compelling.  Eventually, these techniques found their way into her latest works which she describes as "organic abstract".
Her story is one of practical creativity, and selling art has now become a means of supporting her obsession.
