Blissful Bloom, pressed botanicals on cardstock
Anna Sidorow is a self-taught artist working in mixed media: collage, printing, painting who 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.
She works at Yale University in the Anesthesiology Department business office.
