Artist: Anna Magruder

This is an installment in a series of posts profiling the artists and performers taking part in Works 2012. We are highlighting a different artist every few days, so please visit again to learn about the groups and individuals we have the pleasure of showcasing this year.


About the Artist
Anna’s passion is oil painting and illustration. Her favorite subjects are people and animals. Drifting between realism and surrealism, Anna loves recreating vintage America, reimagining the lives and stories of strong women, capturing the dormant kookiness of a local cat, or just exploring the emotional color of faces in the crowd.

After graduating from college, Anna traveled and worked as a graphic designer, moving from Texas to Colorado and eventually migrating north to Portland where she opened her own graphic design business. In 2009, Anna decided to take a leap of faith and leave the routine and security of  her design business to focus on her passion—oil painting and illustration.
