Annalisa is an artist who has an enormous appreciation for nature and all living beings who live on this beautiful planet. Her central belief is that all beings on this beautiful planet, no matter if it is to plant life, insects, reptiles, animals, fungi, all are playing an important part in contributing to the well-being of the earth.
Her fascination with facial expressions from people and animals is captured in her work. Seizing moments that convey raw passion and emotion in her subject is what she strives for while creating her art.
Annalisa enjoys working with different mediums such as Acrylics, Watercolor, and gouache. But recently her work has transformed by morphing her ideas with a little creative magic and imagination. She is now using a combination of these main ingredients, mixed with ink, Prismacolor pencils, and pastel. Mixed media has become a welcoming change.
Annalisa is a Breast Cancer survivor, and during her journey with cancer, it has taught her that she is stronger than she could have ever imagined and also reminded her that time on this planet is limited. She quickly realized that the time is now to do whatever her heart desires. And like a warrior, she is utilizing her creative process to heal and be as authentic as she can.
Annalisa is incredibly grateful and feels very blessed to be able to work every day in her art studio space, which is nestled in a beautiful rural setting, surrounded by nature in Ontario, Canada. Since the pandemic of 2020 changed how we all live, gathering with other creative souls in her studio has ended. Being part of a creative group is so inspiring and she is looking forward to re-opening the studio to the public and offering more creative art classes and workshops again.
