Painting is my way of expressing an emotion or moment in time to share with others. I paint a variety of subjects in many mediums and find in each a joyful challenge; I'm currently experimenting with abstract expressionism. I show my work at the Portland Art Museum, in numerous galleries throughout Southern Oregon, and at the Saatchi Gallery in London. My father was an artist and my great, great grandfather was George Inness, an artist of the Hudson River School.

I first started working with stained glass in 1982 and most of my work involved windows with landscapes. With the development of fusible glass a new world of possibilities arose - it can be blown, kiln-casted or formed with a torch, colors layered and shading achieved. I have been fortunate to study under three world-renowned glass artists: Miriam DiFiore
, Roger Thomas
and Kathleen Sheard
. My passion is Nature and my pieces are all about landscapes and wildlife.
Anderst uses her illustrative style to form fictional but plausible unions of biological and man-made structures on canvas. She spent her childhood poring over her father's anatomy books, developing an intense passion for botany, neurology, entomology, evolution and oil paints. She received art education at Southern Oregon Art Academy, Gage Academy in Seattle and in 2010 melded her scientific and art interests with a certificate in Natural Science Illustration at the University of Washington.
