Placido Anatra

Annette’s incomparable and unique art style sets a distinctive tone for the new millennium and beyond. Her art of "Inspirationalism" is born from vision, emotion and life experiences, which are translated onto the canvas or paper in a rich palette of light, color and depth. "There are so many ideas in my head just waiting to come alive… to live endlessly and remain fresh,” avows the artist.
