Oil on canvas
About the piece
This is how I see a wise forest spirit. When a forest is healthy, its spirits are working on creating inner balance and peace. It would be nice to keep whatever left of the forests, just to get back to the balanced state everyone is longing for.
About the artist
Anita Zotkina was born in Odessa, USSR in 1971. She was introduced to art by her parents who were art-lovers, and who provided art supplies and encouraged her to paint at a very young age. She became a full time artist when she was 18. Back then her paintings were sold at the Odessa City Garden as well as various galleries. At the age of 27 she immigrated to New England, US and where she continued her artistic career. Her paintings are in private collections in USA, Argentina, UK, Italy, Russia, Ukraine.
She works with multiple media including oil, acrylic, charcoal, pencil.
Anita doesn’t focus on one subject. Things come in waves for her, and her art expresses stages of the world around her.
The purpose of her art is to invoke mind-opening thoughts and feelings, to see each being as a beautiful creation of the universe that deserves love and care.
