With watercolor or oil paint, Anna Galea observes plant life, laying leaves and petals on the canvas. Often, she honors the natural elegance of her subjects with attentive realism. Tranquil green hues hazily form into sunlight filtering through plants. Buds emerge from misty landscapes. Galea’s images reflect shifting focuses and the ethereal beauty of flora. Often shown with dramatic lighting that allows the artist to make the most of the semitransparent plant structures, Galea's subjects pulse with life, celebrating the harmony of light and color.
Today, Anna Galea works from her Malta based studio as well as from Dubai. Her watercolor work has been honored as masterful both in the United States and abroad in Europe where as recently as spring of 2016 she was a featured master watercolor demonstrator at the International Watercolor Convention in Fabriano, Italy.
