About Antrese

 

Welcome!

If you’re looking for paintings to inspire you, that will show you parts of the world you may not see on your own, or at least give you a different perspective, you are in the right place.

The art world is a funny place, it’s filled with contradictions and colorful personalities. It can be confusing and intimidating, even for someone like me who has centered her life around it.

I’ve made it my business to learn as much as I can about this vocation and career. In fact, I started the Savvy Painter podcast [LINK] and interviewed hundreds of artists, gallery owners, and authors.

Buying art does not have to be intimidating. You don't need a special degree,

Here’s the thing- you know what you like.

You do not need permission or a degree to buy or enjoy original art. You may not have a degree in music, but I’m willing to bet that you know whether or not you like hip-hop, electronica, classic rock or classical composers. You can listen and respond without questioning your intelligence.
You can do the same with art. (and if you really need permission to like whatever art you like - even if it’s not my paintings, here it is).

I guarantee my work.

Yep. I do. I want you to absolutely love it and if you decide within 30 days that you don’t - send it back to me and I will refund your money. No questions asked.

A pursuit of Excellence and Adventure.

Art has been the one constant in my life. It has always been there, even when I ignored it or tried to dismiss it in favor of ‘more practical’ pursuits.

From the time I was 12 until I enrolled in college, I was convinced I would be a surgeon. But in my first year of college, I had a slot that needed to be filled, so I took a color theory class.

I fell in love.

Totally completely in love. I dropped everything and moved back to Southern California to study at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. After graduating with a degree in Illustration and Fine Arts, I harassed Disney until they finally hired me to work in their interactive games department. For the next decade, I worked with some of the most creative minds in the industry, providing art direction on educational CD ROMs and video games.

I loved that job, but as glamorous as it was, it was someone else’s vision, not mine.

To the horror of my accountant, I quit Disney to pursue my own art.

Since then, I’ve had many adventures.

My husband and I spent two years driving from the jungles to the glaciers for my painting project, A Portrait of Argentina.

I started the Savvy Painter podcast - a weekly podcast featuring interviews with top artists, galleries, and authors. After three years, the podcast has been downloaded close to 1.5 million times!

I studied with Israel Hershberg, Ann Gale, and Susan Jane Walp at JSS in Civita, Italy.

My art and life are inextricably intertwined. I’ve traveled all over the world, lived mostly in California but also in Honduras, Alaska, and Argentina.

My current obsession with glaciers came from the time I spent in Alaska and Argentina and an extended backpacking trip in Chile.

One of the many reasons I love being an artist is that my "job" is to bring beauty into this world. I get to look for it, create it, and share it with you.

When you join my mailing list, not only do you get to live vicariously through the eyes of an artist, you get occasional little surprises, exclusive access to new work and although it doesn’t happen often, my studio sales are the bomb!
