Whitney Anderson was born in Alaska to a third-generation commercial fishing family and raised in Seattle. She attended Duke University on a full-ride athletic scholarship and graduated in 2009 with a B.A. in Fine Arts. She is a self-taught fine artist practicing in the mediums of hand-cutout collage (from recycled magazines) the past 3 years, acrylic painting the past 15 years and drawing since she was 3 years old. "Specializing in portraiture and iconic subject matter, I believe what makes me a successful artist is often a paradox of mindsets: whimsical and free of thinking with my ideas yet disciplined and commanding to execute those ideas. I spend countless hours on my art—from conception to completion my mind is always calculating the next move to bring everything I visualize to life. My creative mission is to consistently move towards new challenging work: I believe that is what enthralls the viewer to see beyond the art and into my soul as it in turn touches their own." -Whitney Anderson Instagram @WhitneyLAnderson_art | www.whitneylanderson.com
