Annette Margulies was trained in classical music as a child in Europe and believes painting is an extension of her love for creating and expressing.
Music (classical, jazz, rock) and the grandeur of nature’s gifts have always inspired her. She writes: “Our passions, dreams, and hopes are such an integral part of the human experience that expressing a wide range of emotions on canvas is irresistible—it’s why I paint. To me, painting is a spiritual and intuitive journey. When I paint, I lose track of time and feel the pleasure—it sustains me and completes me. Sometimes I will work on a painting until it tells ME a story. Other times I will start with something in mind, but in the end, I respond to what is on the canvas and work on it until I feel it is resolved. To quote Georgia O’Keefe, ‘I found I could say things with colors that I couldn't say in any other way—things that I had no words for.’”
