Southern Oregon Visual Artists - Where Are They Now?

We've had several prominent artists move out of the area recently, so we created a page for them and moved their listings to it. We hope this will help you stay in touch with artists whose work you've come to know and love. Please note that some information in these listings may no longer be accurate.

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, 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.

Danna Tartaglia

  • Art by Danna - Paintings in Oil
  • Trowbridge Gallery, Ojai, CA
  • Phone: 805.646.0967
My paintings tend to revolve around the motion of animal life, horses running, fish swimming, buffalo strolling, and funny birds and bears. My passion shifts from day to day so I never know just what I'll end up with on the canvas. I've just embarked on a new adventure, having taken over a thriving gallery in Ojai, California, representing 10 accomplished artists. Naturally I'll continue to paint new works...just inside the front door of the Trowbridge Gallery, and to stay in touch with my friends and collectors in Oregon.
