"My name is Annaliza. I've been living like a nomad in The Bay Area for a little over 2 years. My art work is a tapestry taken from the environment of living in the Bay Area. The inspiration is a synthesis of the natural scenery, places, people and emotions felt along the way. The drives along the coastal, State Route 1 on Big Sur; colors inspired through the greens and blues. My walk to the BART, passing nurtured gardens in Berkeley, inspired the floral impressions, the eclectic mix of people that I've had the pleasure of meeting and the signature tie dye that I've grown to appreciate and love.
The Bay Area is a magical place, like no other that I have ever encountered. What started out as an escapist outlet from anxieties and the mundane was a great epiphany to divert my energies creatively. In essence the gift of the area has inspired me. My work is a collection of my adventures and memories made here. This year also marks the 50th year of one of the greatest bands in history inspirational album, The Beatles Magical Mystery Tour. A tour of ordinary people traveling on coach to an unknown destination."
