My name is Anna Rather, I graduated from The San Francisco Art Institute. I have worked in many medias. I have a B.F.A., M.A., and M.F.A. in printmaking and painting. I have many styles, from totally abstract, to an emotional diary, realized in imagery rather then the written word. My work used to consist of imagery of the ocean in combination with my total imagination, color, and design. In addition I look at my old work for inspiration to create new, and more successful images. I use dark color for moody elements and bright colors to contrast with them. I also use layering, by viscosity, multiple plates, and imagery. I remember experiences from the water, like realizing fish swimming in the water, are like birds flying in the sky, and I can fly like the fish around me These metaphors attempt to capture how I feel about the ocean and sometimes self verses conflicts I feel at that time, which is how my imagery can invent a whole new world. Anna Rather I'm also on Facebook.
