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, whether it is to plant life, insects, reptiles, animals, or fungi, are all an important part of contributing to life on earth, and are just as important as humans are.
She enjoys drawing and painting portraits of people and animals and tries to capture those expressions in her work. Moments that convey raw passion and emotion in her subject are what call to her creative process. She enjoys teaching what she knows in her creative art classes and loves to see her students engage with the medium of their choosing and grow in their artistic skills. Art is about connecting with your imagination and learning to be patient with yourself and the artwork during the process of creating.
Annalisa enjoys working with different mediums such as Acrylics, Watercolor, and gouache. Recently her work has begun to transform by morphing her ideas with a little creative magic and imagination by using a combination of these main ingredients. The mixed-media approach to her work has become a welcoming change.
During her journey with cancer, she learned that she is stronger than she could ever have imagined and was reminded that time on this beautiful planet is limited. She quickly realized that now is the time 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 in her art studio space, which is nestled in a beautiful rural setting, surrounded by nature, and located in Ontario, Canada. Since the pandemic of 2020 changed how we all live, gathering with other creative souls in her studio had ended for a couple of years. Being part of a creative group is so inspiring and she is looking forward to the upcoming classes beginning in November 2022. The studio is open to the public by appointment only, See the CALENDAR for more information about art sales, art shows, art supply sales, creative art classes, workshops and more.
