How lucky are we to have Anita Jantz, an award-winning artist, in our shop?! Anita has been painting professionally since 1989. She recently received the People’s Choice Award, third place at the Longmont/Boulder show, and second place at the St. Joseph’s show. Her exhibitions include showings at the Lafayette library; YMCA, Boulder; the University of Colorado, Boulder; Third Avenue Gallery, Cherry Creek, Denver; Cannon Mine Coffee Company, Boulder Outlook Hotel, the Muse Gallery and numerous art shows with the Louisville Art Association.
Anita's favorite choice of mediums is watercolor, pastel and most recently painting on silk. Floral and landscape scenes are her preference, showing her love for nature. In the shop we carry her beautiful paintings, pendants, coasters, and notecards. She recently started screen printing her beautiful florals onto pillows as well!
I paint what excites me which is usually found in nature. I see colors abounding everywhere and I enhance these colors in my paintings for the viewers to see what I see. I strive to record and make permanent those things in life, which are fragile and fleeting. I hope to give the viewer a new visual experience of what nature has to offer.
