Summary

NARRATIVE BIO
Until very recently, Anita’s work had been created in a small town in Colorado. Her small home studio provided the perfect setting for her to teach small private lessons and to create her figurative works in pencil, watercolor, acrylic, oil, and clay. In late 2021, Anita moved and began a new chapter in her life and work outside of the booming city of Nashville, TN. With plans for a larger studio in her new home, as well as a larger kiln, she is over the moon about the possibilities for her work.
Anita Dewitt has won multiple awards for her figurative work throughout southern Colorado. She has two large acrylic paintings in the permanent collection of the Fremont Center for the Arts. Anita’s work has traveled to many private collections throughout the US and England. In 2016, Anita was published in a production of North Light Works titled “Acrylic Works 3, Texture”. In late 2018, Anita became a member of Poetsartists and has had her work published in iARTistas “Invention” and Hashtag magazine’s “Curves”.

ARTIST STATEMENT
