Anda lives in Sherman, Connecticut and began painting in acrylics when she was 16. Acrylics are her favorite medium, which she has worked in for over 35 years. She attended Parson School of Design and graduated in 1983 with her bachelor’s degree. She has had many accomplishments in the art world, including interviews with both local and national publications, such as American Art Collector, Who’s Who in America, Country Gardeners Magazine, Victoria Magazine, and numerous awards and recognition for work as a painter. Her paintings and techniques are published in two books by North Light Publications, including The Best in Acrylic Painting.
For many years Styler painted on location, these days she paints both in and out of the studio. She continues to explore subject matter, but is especially drawn to the magic of the Litchfield Hills, and the New England landscape - the hidden places that are not often seen. After visiting Santa Fe New Mexico in 2011 she fell in love with the landscape,wide open skies and rugged rock formations. The feeling and light of the magical landscape fills her paintings. Her unique style captures the wonder she feels conveying to the viewer the power of the landscape as she interprets it. Working with shadow, light, vibrant color, mood and sky she hopes to bring excitement to her work that reflects the world around her and capture the unique and lasting beauty that only nature reflects.
Anda discovered Atelier Interactive in 2014, and she hasn’t looked back. Atelier Interactive has given her the opportunity to blend and work with a painting knife in ways she used to with oil paint, but without using harsh solvents. She fell in love with Atelier Interactive for many reasons, “The first being how the paint moved, how easy it was to layer with a pallet knife and not lose effects, the richness of the pigments, and they did not turn to gel,like so many others". Anda added “The mixing quality is fantastic - and working with the knife is a dream... thank you Chroma!! Such creativity!!”
Anda’s work can be found in galleries across New England, Virginia and Tennessee. To view more paintings, please visit www.andastylerfineart.com
