Inspiration and Materials

Anastasia's work is primarily figurative, a whimsical mix of fantasy and reality. It blends together bold vibrant hues, energetic brushstrokes and subtle symbolism with a contemporary feel. Often rooted in myths and folklore, her art is woven from bits and pieces of everything - childhood memories, nature, travels and dreams, faces seen somewhere and stories long forgotten... 

Through the use of mixed media like oil, pastels and gold leaf, the artist evokes intricate dreamscapes and ethereal characters, reflecting on complex human nature and aiming to bring peace, strength and kindness we all need.

"Art is a necessity, beauty we must have in the world. Painting and sculpture and music and literature are all of the same piece as civilization, which is the art of making it possible for human beings to live together." 

- Charles Hawthorne
