Anette Power paints both representational art in oil - and "abstracted" work in acrylics and mixed media. “I find myself drawn to subject matters with light and color that celebrate life's fleeting moments”, says Anette. "I enjoy painting on location immersing myself in the present, capturing a sense of our personal place in history. We each have a life story and whether I’m painting cars in Cuba, or light-filled moments with animals or children, I’m always struck by life’s fragility, the beauty and joy that can be found amidst our challenges. My recent abstract explorations allow me to focus on a more personal interpretation of what I see while still highlighting light and color.
Anette has had both solo and two-person shows, in Sweden and the U.S. and her work is held in private collections in North America and Europe. She is grateful to have garnered some “Best of Show” awards in recent years.
Anette worked in Animation for 12 years before becoming a fine artist and is an artist member of the California Art Club. She enjoys teaching and was an active board member of the Westlake Village Art Guild for eight years. She maintains a working studio in Newbury Park, California.
