After a decade working in the animation industry as a background painter, Power embarked on a career as a full-time artist.

From watercolor to pastel, oil, and most recently acrylics, Power enjoys painting both on location, en plein air, as well as experimenting in the studio. Her recent solo exhibition at the Santa Paula Art Museum, Silver Linings – Journey of Light, aptly focused on what brings light through life’s ups and downs.

“Art brings me joy and helps me focus on the beauty in life and I hope to share that with others”, said Power.

Award-winning Power is an artist member of the California Art Club and Westlake Village Art Guild. She is grateful to have garnered some “Best of Show” awards among other awards.

Power grew up on an island off the east coast of Sweden. Nature abounded and creativity was encouraged, and that passion is what later brought Power to the States. She maintains a working studio in Newbury Park, California. See https://www.anettepower.com/.
