The Artist Says:


"Each painting is a stepping stone towards a deeper understanding of the world - I am always learning. I hope to help others not just look at something, but really see it. I also strive for a deeper meaning in my work that is perhaps less about me and more about the inherent, God-given beauty of my subject matter. My goal is to have, at the end of the journey, a body of work that has a positive, timeless message that both inspires and delights."- Anna Rose Bain



Collectors Say:


"Anna -- As I've spent the last few days gazing at the precious face of my son in your work of art, I think I've finally decided what makes portraits so wonderful. Photos capture an image or a moment but freeze them in the past. Looking back at them is wonderful but it always feels just like that - 'looking back'! Every time I look at D's face in the painting, I feel like you captured the essence of his personality and it jumps off the canvas back into my heart each time. It is, of course, not 'real,' but yet somehow I feel as though that little boy is who is growing up so fast now can't run away completely because a little bit of 'real' is captured forever and living in that portrait. Thank you for sharing your talent with us! Such a treasure." - Erica Stanton
 
"I chose a portrait of my kids as an anniversary gift this year. My wife said it was the best gift she had ever received! Anna captured my kids perfectly. My daughter even said, 'I look cute!' when she saw it for the first time." - Chris Rakowitz
 
"I commissioned Anna to do portraits of my 6 year old twins, Carlos and Olivia. The whole experience was such a delight from start to finish. Anna captured the likeness of each one of them beyond what I could have ever imagined. She kept me updated throughout the entire process with progress shots, which were such a joy to see the paintings coming along! Our family was so impressed with her work that my father has commissioned Anna to do a painting of my kids for my mother as a gift! These are heirlooms that will be cherished forever! Thank you so much Anna for such a wonderful gift!  - Kim Fonts
