aNna studied aRt in Vienna, Austria after high school (1971 – 1974).

There she learned Secessionism, Dada, Jugendstil, Abstract Expressionism and Impressionism in music, aRt and German/Austrian literature at Modeschule Hetzendorf  and Linzer Akademie fur Kunst.  She studied with  Austrian artist Josef Schützenhöfer.  aNna earned B.S. while on active duty U.S. Navy (1976-2000).  After leaving the service, she earned B.F.A., Old Dominion University, 2010 thru G.I. Bill benefits.  aNna explored color, color recipes and CoLorFields as a substitute for normal expression.

By using color to represent things other than things and taking a “leap of faith” (literally: aNna trained as a parachute rigger and completed 21 jumps while in the service…) to loosen from the discipline and rigors of military conformity, she began to reclaim her commitment to another voice.    aNna is proud of women’s integration and elevation within the armed forces and in the aRts.

aNna uses the discipline, focus and energy of her previous occupation in creating large, sweeping canvases:  Fields of Color.
