Introducing @anyamirk, an artist working on the #InternationalMuralbyMail here at the Elisabeth Jones Art Center! Anya paints plants, people and landscapes in dreamy, deep watercolors, and has been working recently on our exchange with Arif Bahaduri.
Growing up in Soviet-era Ukraine, Anya Mironets Keyes long dreamed of becoming a painter. After moving to the US and a decade dispensing pills in the pharmacy, she’s finally gotten to her dream job, sharing a studio with women artists in NE Portland and spending her days happily painting.
"When I paint I intentionally leave the marks of the process in my artwork, incorporating paint runs and exposed underpaintings into the final product. By leaving space for undetailed segments, my hope is to give viewers space to fill in the gaps with their own mental image and imagination."
