Anita was born in a small town in Maryland, USA, but lived in the vibrant city of Montreal, QC Canada for 20 years where she pursued her career in Marketing and Product Development. Her passion for art was always part of her life and in her spare time she enjoyed painting commissioned pieces as well a personal pieces. A move to the Okanagan in 2008 presented the opportunity to pursue her dream of working as a full time artist.
Anita's work is not limited to a single theme or subject matter. She paints what inspires her, be it the twisted branch of a grapevine, a moment in a teenager's day, the majesty of the world around her, a single flower caught in the sunlight, or the feeling of power which she puts into an abstract piece. She does not buy into the idea that you have to be a "landscape painter" or a "portrait painter" or an "abstract painter" or any other subject limiting painter. Painting is a passion. There is no limit as to what you can achieve when you follow your passion.
Anita's artwork is displayed at Koyman Galleries in Ottawa, Ontario.
