Anita Trick: Pastel, Watercolor, Oil


Public Reception: November 5, 1:00-3:00 p.m.

Anita is a representational artist who has participated in over 40 group shows and as many solo business exhibitions since joining Fort Wayne Artist Guild in 2008. Anita grew up in Southern California, graduating from USC with a BA in English. Art was always part of her life from an early age, even though she had no formal training. As a career Army officer’s wife, she took art workshops wherever they were stationed. Her goal is to capture the excitement of a fresh snowfall, a colorful flower, an interesting building, or a spectacular sunset. She is an avid photographer, always ready for that special photo. She mostly enjoys painting in her home studio, but will paint en plein air on occasion. She has taken watercolor classes for several years with local artist Lynn Diamente and has attended workshops taught by various artists preparing her in the areas of watercolors, acrylics, pastels and oils.
