Sierra Art Trails 2015 Catalog #15
Anita is know for her ethereal pastel landscapes and florals. Her paintings are inspired by what she observes in nature.
At the age of 50 Anita and her husband moved to the high desert, where she was immediately struck with the open expanse of sky and land and overcome by an urge to create. The blossoming artist began taking classes and painted every chance she could in her spare time, while working at her day job as a buyer for one of the major aerospace conglomerates.
It wasn’t long before Anita became an artist full time. She got into galleries in major cities across the west. After moving to Coarsegold in 2004, Anita was featured in International Artist and the Pastel Journal. Her works are published in Best of America Pastel Artists, Volume II and Eyes on Landscapes. Her artwork is on the cover of Canson Mi-Tientes Earth and Gray Tone pastel pads. Her work has been featured in the Dick Blick catalogue and in full page ads in art magazines.
Anita is currently represented at Timberline Gallery in Oakhurst. She teaches and shows her works at her home studio in Coarsegold, offering private and group classes.
