Anna Afzelius-Alm

Anna Afzelius-Alm Artist Bio

After years as professional management consultant I decided to follow her heart and start painting full time. This shift in carrier happened in August 2015.I was born in 1975 in Minneapolis, USA, grew up in Germany and has lived in England, Switzerland and China.

After this rather busy background I have now finally settled down with my family in Sigtuna, Sweden, where I also have my studio.

My goal with my art is to brighten up the daily life with a playful splash of colour. My work often originates from different moments that I have experienced or a feeling that I want to convey. In the beginning my paintings focused merely on the figurative, but lately I have also become interested in nature, structures and buildings, as well as a higher degree of abstraction. I often interpret reality through large, textured oil paint sweeps.

Mostly the dramatic colour is applied with knife and to add structure I combine this with tweeted colour and collage. In the beginning my paintings focused merely on the figurative, but lately I have in the offing also become interested in nature, structures and buildings, as well as a strong degree of abstraction.

After this rather busy background I secure now finally settled down with my family in Sigtuna, Sweden, where I also obtain my studio. I often interpret reality through large, textured oil surface sweeps. After years as professional management consultant I decided to on her heart and start painting.
