Anna Tovar

Calligraphy Arteest
Denton, TX

“I think that the simplicity of my work makes it unique. I eliminate any extraneous details that are not necessary and let the art speak for itself.”

For Anna, it was always about drawing and painting. She got her degree in it, after all. Really, it’s just the type of drawing and painting and art-making that has evolved into what you see here. From photorealistic drawings and paintings of people’s babies and families, to having a baby of her own, Anna realized that she just wasn’t as inspired by the oil paintings that were both time-consuming and just... not her style anymore. “I wanted to shift my focus to pieces that were more accessible to everyone.” These days, Anna finds herself turning to old books, other calligraphers' work, the ol' internet go-to blogs, and Pinterest to find inspiration. That is, of course, until she runs across strangers pinning HER work. That’s when you know your new style is working.
