''An artist is somebody incredibly patient from outside with a restless spirit inside.'' A.D.
ANNA DOHNANSKA, a self-taught artist, was born in Slovakia in Trencin. Though she studied and became a teacher of English Language and Philosophy, after she moved to Luxembourg in 2008, she rediscovered her ''lust for painting''. Since November 2017 she has been enjoying her artistic journey as an art instructor at Foyer Europeen in Luxembourg.
Anna's work is inspired either by a pure, realistic ''down to the earth'' beauty (Art Classic), or by transcendental endless images (Art Deco), expressing the universal eternity. She uses oil, acrylic, genuine gold leaf and pastel techniques, while richness of colors is one of the most dominant features of her paintings.
''I give to my paintings most of myself: my ideas, patience, emotions, time and sleepless nights.''
