Already drawing in Italy as a teenager, Anna began painting as a young adult in New York, representing what she left behind and what she found and discovered. She paints mostly in oil, and at times in acrylics, on canvas or metal.
In her paintings Anna seeks to express her search and her findings. The luminous colors and gestural approach of her work explore the abstract qualities and delve into the forces of nature. She conveys mystery, a spiritual note, vision, as she is often drawn into a skyward direction.
She was a psychotherapist for many years before devoting herself completely to painting, and she finds that the fundamental elements that come to play in psychotherapy: ethics, esthetics, intuition, empathy, emotion, spontaneity, perception, the unconscious, and more, also play their part in art and artmaking—all leading to an exciting discovery. This is why she loves her work.
She hopes that others, also, woll find something meaningful or interesting in her work.
These are works in oil on oxidized metal, that connect with the mysterious universe but reflect what is already familiar to us . Are we not, is not everything—part of the universe?
