A nationally recognized master watercolorist with numerous signature memberships, Anderson also paints in acrylic and creates pet portraits in watercolor. "I paint to convey the peace and wonder I feel when I put brush to paper. During those hours, I return to the awe and awareness of nature I knew as a child. When those who observe my work enter into that magical place with me, that is when I feel my purpose is accomplished, and I am twice blessed."

The differences between my art and photography are night and day, like my varied interests. I’m constantly amazed by the serene beauty and magical happenings that happen in Nature. Architecture has always been an interest of mine as well. The juxtaposition of the organic with man-made is most interesting. My drawings and paintings often convey a sensual feel. I depict the beautiful nude female with a simplification of form.

My background in art education empha- sizes a strong foundation of classical art training, greatly influencing my artistic focus and direction. My intent is to capture, on paper or canvas, mysterious and thought provoking scenes. Nature with its moods and soft edges has always inspired me to draw and paint abstracts, landscapes or figure studies. My art is in private collections nationwide; I've exhibited in galleries and juried shows in S. California, NW Arkansas and S. Oregon.

A painter and poet, I play in the crossroads of art & spirit. My paintings are visual stanzas of a poem I will spend my life writing - with brush & pen. I've had the honor to create and exhibit art in the United States, Europe & Micronesia. "As with poetry, painting is either a battle or a dance. Given the choice between music & a sword, I choose music." It's a lovely dance. Anna teaches workshops in prophetic art and poetry; see her listing in the Teaching Artists directory.

For me art/creativity is a natural expression of life, an endless unfolding of possibilities. What interests me is that which is not overtly expressed in the world around us. The subject matter of my painting is the subtle wordless realm of sensation, feeling, and intuition. This territory is often ethereal, quiet or soft and sometimes frontal, bold, direct or stormy.
Artist Christina Madden of Medford, Oregon is an oil painter who delights in the lavish use of color.

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.

My style is a blend of Folk and Fantasy art, a fusion of what I see everyday, dream and imagine.

I am on a journey, exploring the path of intuitive art, listening to the voice within to learn, create and share what I find.
