Paintings can be created to serve as a focal point in your design or simply a complementary piece in your composition. Certain paintings techniques can also be used to provide interest and dimension to various architectural elements or accents on furniture.
I have classical training in many painting techniques that can be used for your project. In the past, I have been commissioned for a variety of painting applications from acrylic on stretched canvas, hanging canvas (similar to tapestries) and custom artwork on wood panels to Rosemaling (Norwegian Folk painting), handpainted staircases, and custom painted floors.
My extensive background allows me the flexibility to work in any style and subject that you need to meet your goals of a space and to successfully reflect the individuality of the owner or community you are working within. My past work includes still life, landscape paintings, faux painting, trompe l’oeil, decorative art, and contemporary street art.
“One of my favorite projects was painting a landscape from an area in southeast Kent County. The customer planned to build on the land and wanted a landscape to place above the mantel. We met on the property and took a walk around as I took several photos. I asked about their favorite attributes and took notes on specific elements that were important to them. Back in the studio I recreated the scene on canvas and worked the different elements into the painting. There was no photograph that perfectly mimicked the painting but the image was what the client asked for they were very pleased.”
I enjoy creating works of art that are both unique and reflective – a combination sought by both individuals and companies looking to enhance their environments through the integration of art. Producing art on commission requires a collaborative relationship between the artist and the client. Communication and flexibility are key ingredients to a successful outcome and Anna will work with you to achieve the painting you envision.
