Self taught portrait & figurative artist, born & currently living in Ontario, Canada.

Anna began her gallery in 2004, by first exploring charcoal as a medium followed by soft black and white pastel and incorporating color shortly after. The majority of her latest art work is now created in oil paint on canvas.

In Anna's gallery, a diversity of artistic subjects are displayed together with the many portrait paintings of numerous persons, including works completed for members of the Canadian Woman's National Soccer Team.

Since 2004, Anna has held numerous exhibitions throughout the Greater Hamilton Area and has been commissioned to create original paintings for individuals and corporations in the United States, Europe and across Canada.

Her diverse collection of paintings represent the impressionistic style with a touch of expressionism. Anna's treatment of lighting and shadows, emphasized in her portraits and other artistic subjects, dynamically embrace and transcend the expression of human emotions.

The AGH (Art Gallery of Hamilton) has put her art on display in the spring of 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010 in a juried exhibition presented by the Women's Art Association of Hamilton (WAAH).

"To Dance", an oil on canvas art piece (especially created for Hamilton Health Sciences Foundation) was auctioned off ($12,000) with all the proceeds going to Mac Kids. The art piece was generously donated by the buyer to Mac Kids to be permanently exhibited at McMaster Children's Hospital in Hamilton Ontario (2008).

The oil painting of "Young Oprah Winfrey" has been published in "Portrait of America" - Oprah Winfrey: The Celebrity As Entrepreneur,
Vol.II 10th edition, U.S. published 2010.
Authors:
Stephen B. Oates
Charles J. Errico

Art work used for cover of a Canadian novel "Shades of Teale" by Susan Crossman - YR2011

Known for his hilarious and touching trilogy of one-person shows about his life--Cu'Fu?, Mangiacake and Sunamabeach--Charly Chiarelli knows how to delight audiences with his storytelling as well as with his prowess on the harmonica. Art Waves asked him to come by and tell them about Christmas, from his point of view both as a child and as an adult. The conversation is followed by Charly's children's album, Ho Ho Hum.
