Through these intersections, pathways, decisions, doors, we all have the commonality of feelings as simple as the breath we take each moment. This is achieved by focusing on the visual sensory evoked by usage of forms, lines, and the colors of which articulate the reactions. Like our collective memory that is filled with minute details of bigger experiences, these transitory sentiments are just the surface of an experience and memory, which exists in all of us. These emotions, discarded, retraced, lived and let go of, define us, and make up much of our identity… our human identity. It is these emotions, lodged in our collective subconscious, which has become a major source of inspiration for my work.
After spending many years fighting against her true calling in life, Anne Oliver decided to fight no more and set upon a new adventure where she followed her heart and returned back to college. Embarking on this journey lead her to her true passion-the arts! Three years later, in 2003, she earned a Bachelor’s of Fine Art degree (emphasis in Painting) and graduated Summa Cum Laude from the School of Art & Art History at the University of Florida. She looks back at that time in her life as a “magical experience”. She states, “I not only feel fortunate enough to have been given a second chance to pursue my education; but I feel enormously blessed to have been given such great instruction from my professors and for the friendships that were developed there.” Ms. Anne Oliver works out of her home studio located in North Florida. She would classify herself as a versatile painter, fluctuating between arrays of styles, depending upon her mood. In learning to not fight the internal instinct/eclectic nature of her being which drives her, she no longer questions the need to “dabble”. So she simply listens, embraces and goes with the flow. Each style offers her something new, exciting, and unique from the others. She has exhibited her work in both solo and group exhibitions and her artwork can be found in both public and private collections throughout U.S., Canada and Japan.
