Meet Anna Lassonde
Minnesota native, Anna Lassonde is an artist that works in mostly acrylics. She paints on canvas, works on murals and teaches acrylic painting classes for people of all ages, and has even enjoyed playing in paint with memory care residents at the local care center.
She believes art is to be enjoyed by everyone no matter what skill level and there is an artist inside of everyone!
Sharing art is her passion.
She also loves to paint animals, especially horses and pets, and the occasional landscapes. She likes to paint in color and also a monochromatic black and white style with a splash of color. Lately her work has been portraits of the beautiful people of Lubango, Angola inspired from her recent trip.
In October of 2019 she planned an African mural, then coordinated, and painted the 120 foot long mural in Angola. The mural consisted of Bible stories painted in an illustrative style. Faith is an important part of her life, which she often incorporates into her art. She offered the opportunity to the local people to help paint on the wall and be included in the process of painting the mural. She was thrilled with the interest and welcoming response from the community! To her delight the mural will be replicated by local Angolan artists in downtown Lubango.
Anna also enjoys creating sketches, watercolor, snapping beautiful photographs and making handmade paper.
