Local Artist: Anita Skinner
Anita has always loved art and has taken many painting and drawing courses over the years. In university she took some painting classes along with two years of art history which gave her insight into techniques etc. Anita prefers acrylics, and loves to use bright colours to enhance her whimsical style of painting. She likes to capture the Okanagan landscape using her own unique interpretation of the natural environment.
Many of Anita Skinner’s paintings include children playing in the snow or picking apples in the Okanagan sunshine. Anita has exhibited her work in a number of juried shows in the Okanagan, where she has lived for the past 20 years. She continues taking workshops to enhance her skills, and is an active member of the Federation of Canadian artists.
