Anette Power loved art and nature from early on, growing up on an island off the Swedish coast.  She was able to apply that passion here in the States as a Background Artist in Animation during her 14-year stint working for studios like Disney, Warner Bros., Cartoon Network and Universal. Today Anette enjoys painting scenes that capture life's colorful moments and our moment in time, whether it's classic cars, hazy atmosphere in nature or a building dappled in light.

More about Annette:

Anette Power's early memories in art stem from when fellow kindergarteners asked her to draw for them.   Anette credits her mom, also a painter, for her and her sister’s early exposure to art and providing a childhood full of creative exploration.   Growing up on an island off the Swedish coast set the stage for an on-going passion for nature and also spurred her dreams to see more of the world.   
 
She eventually landed in Los Angeles and found her way into the world of Animation spending 14 years thriving as an artist painting backgrounds for studios like Disney, Warner Bros., Cartoon Network and Universal.   This on the job training fine-tuned her skills and utilized her ability to capture a mood and tell a story with her work.   She has continued her studies with Ray Roberts, Peggy Kroll-Roberts, Camille Przewodek,  Albert Handell, William Wray, David Shevlino, Carol Marine and Glenn Dean among others.
 
Anette has had both solo and two-person shows in Sweden and the U.S. and her work is held in private collections in North America and Europe.
 
Anette is drawn to subject matters with light and color that celebrate life's fleeting moments.  She enjoys painting in locations that capture a sense of our personal place in history.    After two years as a full-time artist in residence at Studio Channel Islands Art Center Anette is now busy painting on location and in her new home studio.
