The artist’s gallery of recent work showcases a cumulative expression of the local landscape including people, wildlife, and vast, natural expanses. The huge amount of variance in Anastasia’s style creates the sense that each series of work is a kind of summation of different thoughts and viewpoints on similar subjects, and the portfolio as a whole has a pleasantly experimental feel to it.

I get the sense that Anastasia creates artworks primarily for her own enjoyment, and the resulting works are imbued with a sense of lightheartedness. Technically, the artist’s style is gestural, with visible brush marks that celebrate the quality, texture, and materiality of whatever type of paint Anastasia is working with.
