“All of my life, I knew that I was destined to be a visual artist. It all started with sketches of horses at the age of two, where the ambition to become something more came to fruition."
An award-winning visual artist with over 35 years of professional, fine art experience. Anastasia ("Ana") Chemikos is inspired and derives her art from the soul -there is no method. Her work covers a wide spectrum of subject matter: floral still life, landscapes, animals, multicultural themes, icons, and other compositions depicting fantasy only found in our dreams.
