She came one morning to ask how I was doing and if everything is all right. Just being next to her helped to get the feeling of content that was missing all these years. Time between her visits is getting longer, and sometime I scold myself for volunteering to be here, because I miss my home and our happy community. It might have felt different, if I thought that I’m making a progress toward beauty and peace for everyone, but most of the time it feels that nothing is changing for the better. She said that everyone said hi, gave me a hug, promised to take me home soon and flew away on a little vessel back to our stars.
Anita Zotkina was born in Odessa, USSR in 1971. She was introduced to art by her parents who were art-lovers, and who provided art supplies and encouraged her to paint at a very young age. She became a full time artist when she was 18. Her paintings were sold at the Odessa City Garden as well as various galleries. At the age of 27 she immigrated to New England, US and where she continued her artistic career. Anita doesn’t focus on one subject or on one medium. Things come in waves for her, and her art expresses stages of her inner world. She never knows what she will believe tomorrow and what will be her next venture. She gets inspired by everything: people, wine, Europe, music, radio-shows, books and etc. Recently the YouTube channel became her greatest inspiration. That is where she learned about Peter Joseph and Zeitgeist movement, Dr. Greer and extraterrestrial visitors, Guy McPherson and abrupt climate change, and many other fascinating things. She wants the viewers of her art to concentrate on their thoughts and feelings, to think about dinosaurs (i.e. they were once a very important part of the Earth and now they are gone), be in peace and love the universe.
