About Anisa

I graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art from Washington University in St. Louis.

Painting is my meditation practice, allowing me to recharge and re-center. Mixing color, creating shape & form, and just letting my hand flow through the brush feels incredibly calming. When painting, I become a vessel through which creative energy transmutes into physical form. This trance-like experience enables me to live in the present moment without hesitation. While I'm painting, I can escape into a world of joyful color and movement. Painting lets me dance in order to find the spaces between what I see vs. what I want to see and how I feel vs. how I want to feel. These creative deep dives allow me to connect with a deeper part of myself that emerges renewed. My paintings capture my truest internal spirit: a boundless love for my family, for nature, and for life.

"Painting is just another way of keeping a diary." - Pablo Picasso
