Her sensitive female figures are caught in reflective moments, as you get a glimpse into their private world thru her eyes. The beauty and innocence is mesmerizing, accented by her perfection in realism. Art has been a way for Anna to know herself and the world around her. “Art helps me to express an idea, an emotion or, more generally, my worldview through colors, shapes, light, without words.” explains Anna. Inspired by many of the great masters, Titan, Velazquez, Rembrandt, Rubens, Holbein, Ingres, Boucher, Fragonard, Zorn and Sargent, as well as the great Russian realist schoolmasters, Levitsky, Venetsianov, Bryullov, Serov, and Fechin. Anna is very proud to be a successor of the traditions of the Russian realistic school of painting.
