Annette Rawlings: "Transitions in Art"


A short introduction to ANNETTE RAWLINGS

Annette Rawlings is an American fine artist who has an extensive artistic biography as she has been showing for many years her artworks at different locations in America, Asia and Europe.

Her work is comprised of magnificent colorful paintings, sculptures and ceramics which were born in her mind and personal experiences. Shapes and brilliant colors are a characteristic of her work.

She has always been able to project a restless spirit that has never been detained by time or adversity. Ms. Ralwings is a clear example of tireless artistic work. Each piece, like a poem, deserves the analysis and thoughtfulness of the observer. Maybe we may say that each of her paintings can tell a different story.

This book pretends to show the world – thanks to digital media – part of the work of an artist whose sincerity and devotion to the arts and culture has no limits.
