Anna Pales
I am a painter. I believe art is the most forceful and clear way to communicate.

Even cave men had art on their walls....

Anna Pales was awarded full scholarship to the Art Institute of Chicago and simultaneously attended the University of Chicago. She solely founded the “Expression Through Art” division of the “Artist in Residence Program” in Chicagoland's public and private schools. Her work has been exhibited in museums and recognized throughout the United States as well as London, France, Australia, New Zealand, and Ireland. She has had numerous group and individual showings nationwide.

Trained in mixed medias including acrylic, oil, encaustic and resin, her focus is on contemporary still life. Anna exhibits her great love for nature through her timeless landscapes.

Art is simply the language of the soul, a forceful way to communicate.
