Teaching Artist Anna Sidorow works in mixed media: collage, printing, painting and primarily creates small works of art. Her paintings are semi-abstract, and more than just the subject, the colors, shapes, movement and the paint itself gives the image a strong visual aesthetic. She uses pressed botanicals in her collaged note cards – every petal, leaf and stem has been picked and pressed by her. She has been experimenting with marbling paper and monotype printing, using gelatin as the plate surface. Anna has participated in numerous art shows and exhibits her work at Spectrum Gallery.
