Her Art was featured in N.Y. Arts Magazine; the cover story of Artdependence Magazine; and Design Within Reach in which it received the 1st place Design Philadelphia Wall Art award. Her works are archived at the Asian American Art Archive (AAAC) in New York City. The Yale University China Hands Magazine has described Anita’s paintings as a “Traditional art form that questions the Modern Mind.”
Anita’s current works have been dealing with preservation of nature and the ancient form that honors is — ‘Guo hua’; patterns in nature and the roles of traditional Art forms in the digital art age. In “Preserved”, Anita has preserved strange finds from nature under glass with backgrounds of ‘Guo hua’ –both fragile but beautiful. They are given a second life and are frozen in time with new meanings under glass, they tell stories of their existence and lives.
