Q1: When did you start making art?
I took up digital art about 4 years ago. I’ve been working as a professional artist since 2013.
Q2: What does inspire you?
Hidden beauty within people and ofcourse music. Works of other artists are also sometimes inspiring.
Q3: What are your techniques?
Digital tablet + photoshop. I also make pencil sketches from time to time (small picts for myself just for fun. I seldom show them anyone).
Q4: What is the main idea or feeling behind your works?
It’s hard to say. Different works have different implications. But mostly there are no ideas, but emotions that I try to express through lines and colours =)
Q5: What is the main color of your art and why?
I really like violet, blue, red and green. Dark shades. I’ve never asked myself why. That is a case for a phycologist i think.
Q6: What would you improve about your work and why?
Frankly speaking, everything. Shape, colour, light….etc. I do not have any artistic education so I have to try my best to improve.
Q7: Do you have any project for the future?
For the following several years I plan to spend many hours drawing and painting. The only project for the nearest future is to become a true profficient.
Q8: Describe yourself with 3 words capturing the essence of AnnaGabrie.
“impossible” “to” “describe”.
Q9: Show us (link) your very first work. Describe it from techniques till feelings.
I’ve deleted most of the early works, but I managed to find one on my friend’s home page-HERE. Nothing special, as far as I remember it was a gift for a friend of mine.
Q10: What did change from your first work till now?
O guess a lot of things. I used to paint black-and-red dark gothic stuff. Now i try to make the subjects of my art vary.
Q11: What is art for you? Escaping from reality or the essence of life?
I think both. If we speak of my personal art that is the way to escape reality, if we speak of the works I paint to earn my living that is the essence of life.
