Anna Barnhart


Anna Barnhart is an impressionist painter creating prophetic and studio art. Using the versatility of acrylic paint with texture, she loves natural themes bordering on abstract. Creating by hand and using many of her senses (except eating paint), Anna values play when interpreting nature, often becoming an act of worship of the Creator.

Projects collaborating with farms, libraries, churches, or local businesses are her favorite, as the works integrate with the community and can involve another favorite thing: local produce! Anna has created art for over 10 years, with a degree in Animation, and over four years experience teaching at Michael’s Art and Crafts.

Her art can be found at select Michigan art shows, her website, social media, and her YouTube channel.

Let’s take some examples of busy pictures and break them down into usable and effective parts. This is also great for photographers wanting to take pictures with better traditional composition.
