“When I go into the studio, I like to be surprised,” she says of her fine art monoprints, a painterly technique that mixes oil-based inks on a plexiglass plate and transfers them onto a water-infused paper. Unlike other styles of printmaking, the technique renders each print unique; once the plate and paper are pushed through the high-pressured press, the layers of vibrant inks, solvents and prismatic glitters interact in unexpected ways. The result is always spontaneous and spectacular.
A Los Angeles native and graduate of Rhode Island School of Design, Anna lives and works on the east side of LA. As well as printmaking, she also makes large-scale paintings on canvas. The key thread throughout her work is a deeply personal connection to color and texture.
