THE ART OF ANNA GREEN
I was exposed to the world of visual art at young age, in my birthplace, Melbourne, Australia. My mother painted in oils and sculpted, and she often encouraged me to paint along with her. After high school, I went to Ontario College of Art in Canada, where my focus was fine art. I had intended to carry on in my education to become a medical illustrator (as I also had an interest in health care), however I got sidetracked and moved to the Bahamas. There, I married and had two little girls. During my six years on the island, I painted in watercolor and sold my work through local tourist galleries. I eventually moved back to Canada and got sidetracked with the demands of everyday life.

In the last decade, I have been fortunate to have the time to delve more deeply into my art career. I believe that my diverse life experiences (relationships, travel, career changes and personal interests) have positively impacted my paintings. My style is considered “whimsical” …. a reflection of my daily activities, thoughts and dreams.

While I still love the challenge of portrait work and the serenity of landscapes and still life….. the female image has become my trademark. My “feminine spirits” have evolved from fairies, yogis and mermaids to women with attitude (the girlfriend’s series)… all symbolizing the inner strength and grace of the female. My paintings often evoke a smile or a chuckle, as the viewer can often see elements of themselves in each.

My work is exhibited internationally, in the U.S., Central America and Canada. To see more, visit my website at www.thebeachouse.ca Available work can be ordered and shipped to your home.
