Brief description of self: I am a creative, multifaceted woman.

Long Description of self: My name is Ana Šušilović. My art business is called Anchi’s Art. The reason behind the name is my grandparents called me Anchi growing up and we were very close. I got my talent from my grandma Olga and they always encouraged me to keep pursuing it. I am Serbo-Croatian, currently reside in the DMV. I am an artist with a day job and a brand new mom. One day I hope to fully dedicate my time to art but until then I enjoy creating pieces that brighten other peoples lives and evoke emotion.

What I create: I create paintings on canvas, wood and walls. My paintings are usually vibrant creations of the world around me, from people to places. I love to create women in an empowering light. I have also done some abstract work.

Project Description: Woman, Mother, Queen

Medium & why: Acrylic paint and gold leaf on canvas. That is my medium prefernece.

Favorite part of the creative process: Seeing the emotion from the person who the artwork is intended for.

The most challenging part of the process: Getting started!

Inspiration of this creation: My amazing sister and watching her become a mama for the first time. This painting was started right as I got pregnant in 2021 and I finally finished it last month next to my 6 month old baby.

Advice to other aspiring artists: Create from your heart, dont worry about following trends & do what inspires YOU. It will lead you to an amazing creative and authentic journey.

Testimonial: “Creating artwork allows your mind to be in a safe place while it contemplates the tougher issues you are dealing with. One can use the tools of brush, paint, pastels, crayons etc to expose and even for a short time color those issues in a different light.”  ~ George E. Miller
