Anna Maiko

Art has been Anna’s passion ever since she was a child growing up in Ukraine. Now she lives in California and has a studio in San Jose. Over the years Anna had her work featured in a number of publications, exhibitions and charity auctions. Her passion translated into her paintings through colors, style, and technique. “I am attracted to everything beautiful in nature and my main objective is to recognize and to express the beauty of the surrounding world.” Looking at Anna’s works you always getting a feeling of the artist’s soul in the painting. Dreamy is the word to describe Anna’s works, her paintings reflect a beautiful world where everything harmoniously coexists.

The interlacing of quiet tones with the bright color impact is the trademark of the artist. Abstract floral elements are a big aspect of Anna’s artwork and in a combination with the sensual dynamics, creates an unforgettable experience for the viewer. She says ” My inspiration comes from nature, particularly flowers. Flowers intrigue me with their innumerable compositional shapes, intricate detail, color variations and the way they are changed by light and shadow. I am inspired when I see them, wanting to move in and get a closer look, they draw me in and into my own spiritual energy. It is said that “seeing the beauty in a flower could awaken humans, however briefly, to the beauty that is an essential part of their own innermost being, their true nature.” (Eckhart Tolle)
