The artwork of Annalisa Loevenguth will be on display at the Joel D. Valdez Main Library from February 1-28 during regular library hours.
Through her adolescent years, Annalisa wrote and illustrated her own short stories. She began experimenting with many different mediums: watercolor, acrylic, colored pencil, pastel, and oil. Most of her early works were abstract. She loved the freedom and creative expression it allowed for.
After college, Annalisa found her true calling in mixed-media artwork. She began to look for specific patterns and textures that would fit custom commissions, and used acrylic paint on top of the textures to add dimension and volume to the piece. “Through this art form, the pieces usually invent themselves. The textures and layering of paper give the artwork a 3-dimensional character.” Now she is an independent artist creating custom pieces of art.
