“As a practising visual artist and independent curator, my interests are multi-faceted, and I work across all media. My art is an attempt to allow the image to make itself clear with minimal influence of the mind, by a process of being still and receptive to what it is that wants to be captured. I have always been passionate about making my art. I use the journey of artistic expression as a doorway inward. Uncovering ever deepening ways of ‘being’ into the experience of life, transmitting to the viewer the sublime metaphors through symbols, colour, and rich backgrounds. I draw inspiration from my intuition and interpretation on life experience. My work crosses over into abstract expressionism and minimalism”. – Annie Fitz
