About the Artist
Anna was born and raised in Moscow, Russia, where the regime insisted all be alike, sing the same songs, wear the same school uniform, and buy the same furniture. People were not allowed to be unique, stand out, and express themselves. Suppressing one's artistic abilities was common. Talented artists were often reduced to painting portraits of the Leaders and various Communist party or war heroism scenes. By the mid 1980s it became OK to be an abstract artist but Anna had already lost all the interest she had... until she moved to the US. She is very happy to be able to spread her wings and share her art.
