The Artist Says:


As an artist I dwell in a world of my own making and that is what I enjoy most about the journey.
 
Whether working in oil, acrylic, water, printmaking or sculpting I can create a world which is as unlimited as my creative thought. It enables me to express a multitude of moods; from excitement to the sublime. When viewed these works engage the viewer drawing them into my world. 
 
In my most recent works, what brings me joy is combining my love of dance and music. I work during live performances to create these images. Giving the performances permanence, I record that moment in time, the very breath of the experience into the art.  



Collectors Say:


When asked,  "What is it about my work you enjoy most?" this is what art collectors had to say about Anthe's artworks.
Paul Crum, "The paintings by Anthe are tactile- more than just paint on canvas. The work explores themes such as time, change, spirituality, and life though symbolism, texture, and color. The work also conveys a synthesis of ideas about the human experience though abstract motifs and stand as a permanent record of the goodness and joy that can be found in life through an open heart."

Debra Excharos, "Sometimes I run my fingers over the surface of the piece,  "I'm Doing The Best I Can", just to feel the tactility of it. This piece was created in collage, all cut paper. I enjoy my collection of artworks by Anthe. They bring me joy daily.”
 
I made this piece at a time when I wasn't sure I would be able to paint again due to a car accident and the onset of fibromyalgia. I made it with two torn tendons in my right hand due to a rear-end car accident. I had surgery and I was once again able to create; paint, collage and sculpt as before.

Biography


Creating work is much like breathing… I simply do it because I must 
 
I have always been an artist of some sort. When I was a small child I would take the cardboard pieces out of my dad's laundered shirts to paint and draw upon. I couldn't wait for the next delivery of clean shirts as it would be loaded with many a blank canvases for me to make my creations. I use to get paint by number kits as gifts, however I was never one to stay in the lines so with those paints, my imagination and  the cardboard inserts from my Dad's shirts I would paint, and paint and paint.  
 
I love art, and the creative process in all media. Dance and music were other avenues of expression that I used during my youth. 
 
When I was in my twenties I was a disco and ball room dancer. I belonged to a dance troupe in Cleveland, Ohio called Hollywood & Company. Dancing was a fun and exciting way of expressing myself.   
 
In my late twenties I was hit by a drunk driver and that put an end to my dancing career but not to the passion of what I felt when dancing which remained within.  I continued to pursue the arts  and was honored to attend and graduate with honors from The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the oldest art school in America. 
  
Several years later when attending an artist residency in Montreal Canada, I began to explore  capturing music and dance by utilizing my skills to create the very breath of the performance giving it life and permanence after the each fleeting moment fades.
 
As an artist I also look for ways to give back and spread the joy that I get when creating work.  I instruct and share through The AnA [...]
