I rarely watch news and never watch horror movies. Tragic or scary imagery can haunt me for years. I also get a lot of inspiration from fine art and historical movements, such as romanticism. These inspirations, as well as nature, positive emotions, and healing arts, bring more knowledge and more spontaneity into my work. CG: What about the idea that creation always comes from chaos? Anna: Yes, true beauty and rebirth come from chaos. Pablo Picasso once said, “Every act of creation is first an act of destruction”. You have to deconstruct things literally or in your head to be able to create something new, to make people think in a new direction. Most people are too lazy or busy to break their habitual patterns to ever experience this. CG: Do you have your own signature style? Anna: I love working with photographic abstracts by creating visual ambiguity and cerebral messages within the body. I feel ignited by complexity – I’m attracted to it – which is reflected in my personal work. I was told my art subjects look like angels. I would agree to that. I want to inspire people, especially women, to become better versions of themselves. Become a work of art within your mind and stop idolizing models or anyone who you think is better than you. Invest in yourself financially and energetically, and you will see the results appearing.
